Roma Street Parkland

Cross River Rail

The $5.4 billion Cross River Rail is a new 10.2 kilometre rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, which includes 5.9 kilometres of tunnel under the Brisbane River and CBD.

Upcoming impacts to Roma Street Parkland:

- Demolition of the Brisbane Transit Centre and Hotel Jen buildings has commenced and will be completed late 2020. There will be an increase in construction workers and vehicles in the area and a potential of increased levels of localised noise and vibration. Traffic control will be in place for any temporary changed traffic conditions, including lane closures, footpath diversions and reduced speed limit. Works will generally occur between 6:30am and 6:30pm, Monday to Saturday, weather and construction conditions permitting.

- Monday 23 November between 9am - 4pm there will be some short term traffic holds for approximately two minutes along Parkland Boulevard. This is due to deliveries that are scheduled to be transported by Cross River Rail. Traffic control will be in place on Parkland Boulevard to assist as per the attached. There will be additional traffic control at the footpath from the coach terminal through the rail tunnel.
