Brisbane's historic Central Station is set to receive a makeover later this month with a three-year program of upgrades worth AUD $67 million. 

The station built in 1889 is a gateway to Brisbane with up to 140,000 passengers travelling through the station every day. The new-look station will feature a new extended roof, with a glass façade that will transform the station and inject the space with more light.

 

  • A new roof, which will extend over the Edward Street end of the concourse, injecting light and improved ventilation, and give the station a modern, airy feel.

  • Complete modernisation of the platforms, including ceiling, wall and floor treatments and lighting, level entry boarding, extended cover on Platforms 2/3 and 3/4, new passenger information displays and seating.

  • New lifts and modernisation of the stairs and escalators leading to platforms.

  • An additional escalator from the concourse to ANZAC Square, to reduce congestion during peak periods.

  • A refurbishment of the back of house facilities, including offices, communications rooms and first aid areas.
