Making Queensland’s train stations more accessible.

Safety and accessibility upgrades to Qld Train Stations

We were again selected to deliver safety and accessibility upgrades to train stations across the Southeast Queensland rail network, with the contract to undertake works at Boondall train station as well as works at Strathpine and Morayfield stations. This follows the 2016 contract to deliver safety and accessibility upgrades to the Newmarket and Alderley Stations.

The station upgrades supported 250 jobs at each site and were delivered as part of the Queensland Government’s ongoing $300 million station upgrade program which is improving the accessibility of stations across the Southeast Queensland rail network.

The upgrade at Boondall station includes a new footbridge with lifts, raising sections of the platform to provide easier access on and off the train, hearing aid loops, extended platform shelters, upgraded lighting and CCTV, new wayfinding platform signage and platform tactiles. 

These works provide commuters with an accessible step-free path through the train station.

“The upgrade will ensure everyone, including customers using mobility aids, seniors and people with prams, can travel safely and easily.” Member for Nudgee Leanne Linard.
Boondall is a key station for Brisbane’s expanding northern suburbs which caters for large crowds attending the nearby Brisbane Entertainment Centre and is one of the busiest on the Shorncliffe line, with almost 300,000 customer trips a year.
“We care about ensuring all rail customers have safe access to transport, regardless of their age and ability. We are passionate about making it easier for people to get around our cities, and minimising disruption during the building process,” Joe Barr, CEO John Holland.
