South Bank platform 1 upgrade

Platform 1 upgrade, view towards Vulture Street - Concept design, September 2021 (subject to change)


Queensland Rail is upgrading platform 1 at South Bank station to improve accessibility for customers and better connect with the adjacent Southpoint development.

The platform 1 upgrade will make it easier and safer for customers to use the station and access the connecting retail and residential precinct.

These improvements will support many customers who use our network, such as those using mobility devices, people with vision or hearing impairment, seniors, people with injuries and those travelling with prams and luggage.

Features of the platform 1 upgrade include:

  • a full-length raised platform
  • platform seating and shelters that cover the majority of the platform and access ramp
  • upgraded security cameras and lighting at assisted boarding points
  • new wayfinding and platform signage.

Feedback can be provided by contacting the project team via phone, email or mail as outlined under 'Enquiries'.

For regular email updates on the station upgrade, join the project's mailing list.

Alternative transport during platform 1 closures

Customers are encouraged to use Park Road or South Brisbane as an alternative station during platform 1 works.

If you are travelling outbound (from City) to South Bank station, you can:

  • disembark at Park Road and catch any inbound service back to platforms 2/3 at South Bank
  • disembark at South Brisbane station and travel to your destination (850 metres to South Bank station).
If you are travelling outbound from South Bank station, you can:
  • catch any inbound service from platforms 2/3 to South Brisbane and transfer to an outbound train service
  • catch a bus service from South Bank busway station to Park Road busway station and transfer to an outbound train service.

Please allow an additional 30 minutes for travel or consider using a different station during the closure. If you require assistance with access, please see station staff when you travel.
