​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Bundamba station is being upgraded to make it more accessible for everyone in the community. 

Queensland Rail's Station Accessibility Upgrade Program will make it easier for customers to travel on our network whether you're pushing a pram, carrying luggage, using a wheelchair or injured, you'll be able to use the station with ease. 

Key features of the upgrade include:

  • A new footbridge with lift access
  • Improved accessible parking, including kiss 'n' ride area
  • Full-length, high-level platforms
  • Upgraded hearing augmentation loops and tactile ground surface indicators 
  • Upgraded security cameras and lighting
  • New wayfinding and platform signage
  • Accessible toilets and ticket windows
  • New bicycle storage facility
  • Improved seating and extended platform shelters
  • Improved station building and facilities.​ 

Station closure and alternative transport

To fast-track construction and deliver the upgrade as safely as possible, the station is now closed until later this year while major work is underway.

During this time, trains are running express through the station. Customers can look forward to using the new, modern, fully accessible station in the second half of 2024.

  • Shuttle bus 501 is operating between Booval station, Bundamba station and Ipswich TAFE.
