Queensland Rail has upgraded Dakabin station to improve accessibility and make it easier and safer for customers to use.

The upgrade was part of the Queensland Rail Station Accessibility Upgrade Program​ which focuses on providing greater accessibility to rail services.

The station upgrade was designed to provide a single access path from accessible station entrances to the assisted boarding points, achieved through platform raising and upgrading accessible parking and essential station and customer facilities. These improvements support many customers using our network, such as those using mobility devices, people with hearing or vision impairment, seniors, people with injuries and those travelling with prams and luggage.

Features of the upgraded station include:

  • a new pedestrian footbridge with lift access
  • raised section of platform encompassing the core zone and assisted boarding point
  • improved accessible parking
  • upgraded hearing augmentation loops and tactile platform surfaces
  • upgraded security cameras and lighting around the core zone
  • new wayfinding and platform signage around the core zone.

A multi-storey parking facility was ​delivered concurrently with the accessibility upgrade.

The new station facilities and multi-storey carpark opened for public use in May 2022 and Thompson Road was reopened to through traffic.

The upgraded Dakabin station and carpark were officially opened on 10 June 2022. We thank customers and the local community for their patience during construction.
