Application for project change

Cross River Rail project – Roma Street station precinct

Cross River Rail is a new 10.2 km rail line that includes 5.9 kms of twin tunnels running under the Brisbane River and CBD; with four new underground stations at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street and Roma Street.

On 26 March 2010, the Coordinator-General declared the Cross River Rail project a ‘coordinated project’ under section 26(1)(a) of the State Development and Public Works Organisation Act 1971 (Qld). In December 2012, the Coordinator-General published the evaluation report on the project’s environmental impact statement, determining the project could proceed subject to conditions.

The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority (the Delivery Authority) is leading the development, procurement and delivery of the Cross River Rail project. The Delivery Authority recently applied to the Coordinator-General to change the scope of works approved for the Roma Street station.

The change involves:

• closure of Herschel Street to vehicles between George and Roma Streets

• adjusting signalised intersections, footpaths, cycle infrastructure and urban design to accommodate the new arrangements

• maintaining the Inner Northern Busway at its current location, removing the previously proposed design to shift the busway underground as part of the new Roma Street station

• maintaining the current intersection arrangement at Roma Street and Parkland Boulevard.

You are invited to comment on the application. The Coordinator-General will consider your comments as part of the evaluation.
