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

Queensland Rail's Station Accessibility Upgrade Program​, opens in new window 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

  • New wayfinding and platform signage

​Station closure and alternative transport

To fast-track construction and deliver the upgrade as safely as possible, the station is temporarily closed.

During this time, trains are running express through the station. Customers can look forward to the station reopening in the second half of 2024.​

A dedicated shuttle bus service is running between Burpengary and Narangba stations to assist customers during the station closure.

  • Shuttle bus 661 is operating between Burpengary and Narangba stations

  • The shuttle is running every 10–15 minutes in peak hour (6am to 9am and 4pm to 6pm​ on weekdays)

  • Outside of peak hour, route 661 connects with arriving trains at Narangba station
