Roma Street Parkland is undergoing significant transformation, with exciting construction projects currently underway in the precinct. 

This page will provide information about the upcoming impacts of construction to Roma Street Parkland visitors.

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.
