Ipswich station lift upgrades

​Works are currently underway to replace and upgrade the lifts at Ipswich station, making them more reliable and accessible for our customers. Both lifts will undergo upgrade works concurrently, enabling them to be returned to service faster for our customers.

Works will involve the removal of the current lift cars and demolition of the lift surrounds, construction of new lift surrounds, motor room and installation of the new lifts.

These works are expected to take four months to complete.

We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we work to improve Ipswich station.

Alternative access for customers

Customers travelling through Ipswich station who usually use these lifts are encouraged to use the station ramps during this time. Station staff will be on hand to provide assistance if required.

If customers are unable to use the ramp, they are encouraged to speak to station staff who will be able to arrange alternative transport during this time. If your station is unattended, please call 13 16 17 for assistance.
