Morningside station accessibility upgrade

Morningside station - Concept design, February 2022 (subject to change)

​​
Morningside 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
  • full length high-level platforms
  • upgraded hearing augmentation loops and tactile ground surface indicators
  • upgraded security cameras and lighting
  • new wayfinding and platform signage
  • upgraded station office 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.

Bus service information

  • Shuttle bus 237 is operating between Morningside and Cannon Hill stations.
  • The shuttle runs every 15 minutes or better in peak hour (6am to 9am and 3pm to 6pm on weekdays).
  • Outside of these hours, route 237 connects with arriving trains at Cannon Hill station.
  • If you're heading towards the city, consider catching bus routes 227, 235, P216, P228 or P236 from the Wynnum Road stop outside the station. It may be faster than catching the 237 shuttle.
  • All route 237 services are accessible.

Nearby train stations

  • Cannon Hill and Norman Park are the nearest stations to Morningside and remain open during the upgrade works.
  • During the closure, express trains stop at Cannon Hill.
  • Limited parking is available at Morningside station for those catching the 237 shuttle.
