Cross River Rail – a lifeline for Queensland’s economy
It’s full steam ahead on construction of the largest infrastructure project in Queensland’s history.
Costing $5.4B and scheduled for completion in 2024, the development will feature a 10.2 km track from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills (including 5.9 km of twin tunnels running under the Brisbane River), four new underground stations (Boggo Road, Gabba, Albert and Roma Streets) and the refurbishment of eight existing above-ground stations in the CBD.
The enterprise is already injecting crucial millions into the economy each week, in part due to the thousands of jobs being generated during construction. Its goal is to ultimately improve liveability for the entire region by enabling a turn-up- and-go transport system that will cater for South East Queensland’s burgeoning population well into the future.
BSF’s modest part in this epic project for the CBGU Joint Venture begins with temporary propping works for Albert Street Station.
