Station Accessibility Upgrade Program

Through Queensland Rail's ongoing Station Accessibility Upgrade Program, we are focused on upgrading our stations and facilities to provide a service that is accessible, easy to get to, and easy to use.

The Queensland Government is investing more than $500 million to upgrade stations across the South East Queensland network, to make them accessible for all customers.

Of this investment, $57 million has been allocated for accessibility upgrades at Fairfield, Yeronga, Yeerongpilly, Moorooka, Rocklea and Salisbury stations (F2S), to be delivered as part of the Cross River Rail project. 

Accessibility upgrades are 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.

The following stations are included in the program:

​Station​Status​Expected completion date
Construction completed in mid-2020
Transit-Oriented Developments (TOD) - detailed design underway
Once negotiations with the Transit Oriented Development (TOD) developers are completed, Queensland Rail will be in a position to determine delivery timeframes for these projects


Main construction commenced in April 2020
Completion is currently scheduled for mid-2021. Timeframes will be refined by the contractor’s construction program as the project progresses

Main construction commenced in August 2020
Construction at Cannon Hill is expected to take 12-18 months. Timeframes will be refined by the contractor’s construction program as the project progresses

Main construction commenced in August 2020
Due to the site constraints and construction complexity involved with upgrading Auchenflower station, construction may take more than two years. Timeframes will be refined by the contractor’s construction program as the project progresses

​Main construction commenced in September 2020

Construction at East Ipswich is expected to take 12-18 months. Timeframes will be refined by the contractor’s construction program as the project progresses
​Planning stage

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) is currently in the detailed planning stage for this project, which is expected to be completed in mid-2021. In October 2020, DMTR completed a community consultation on a relocated Loganlea station 

​Accessibility upgrades for six stations will be delivered as part of the Cross River Rail project (CRR)

​Planning stage. Preliminary concept planning and technical studies for the next round of station accessibility upgrades are underway. 
​Timeframes will be known once these studies are completed and contractors are appointed

Station prioritisation

Queensland Rail's station prioritisation approach will ensure upgrades are delivered to stations at key locations, providing accessibility benefits for a broad range of customers. The prioritisation process also provides the opportunity to deliver maximum benefit from associated transport infrastructure projects, such as transit-oriented developments at Albion and Buranda, the Kuraby to Beenleigh capacity study underway involving relocation of the Loganlea station, and the Cross River Rail project.
