Station Accessibility Upgrade Program

Station upgrade program

Through Queensland Rail’s ongoing Station Accessibility Upgrade Program, we are focused on making the improvements to our stations and facilities which allow all customers to travel safely and easily.

These upgrades will significantly improve access for all customers including those with disabilities, the elderly, parents with prams, people with injuries or even simply those carrying luggage.

The following stations have undergone an accessibility upgrade or have been announced:

  • Graceville: completed September 2017

Station prioritisation

The priority list of stations to receive upgrades is continually under review to ensure stations of greatest need are accurately recognised.
 
With 152 stations in the South East Queensland area, the prioritisation of accessibility upgrades is determined by considering a range of factors, including:

  • patronage
  • nearby community facilities
  • existing degree of accessibility
  • existing asset condition.

Queensland Rail’s approach to prioritise stations for an upgrade has the endorsement of Queensland Rail’s Accessibility Reference Group which comprises of representatives from peak disability organisations including Guide Dogs Queensland, Better Hearing Australia, MS Society, Endeavour Foundation, Queenslanders with Disabilities Network and Vision Australia.
