Major contractors appointed to build Cross River Rail


The Palaszczuk Government has announced the international consortia that have won the three major works packages for the Cross-River Rail Project in Brisbane.

The Palaszczuk Government has fully-funded this EUR3.42 bn (AUD5.4 bn) project because it was sick of waiting on the LNP (Liberal National Party) in Canberra to come to the table. The project, a 10.2 km rail line running from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, includes a 5.9 km twin tunnel under the Brisbane River and CBD, 4 new underground stations and upgrades to existing stations. The Cross-River Rail project will generate 7,700 jobs.

As well as improving connectivity across the entire south east, the project will create new precincts at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street, Roma Street and Exhibition, helping Brisbane evolve as a world-class city. Cross River Rail will double heavy rail capacity through the central business district, unlocking the network for future growth and delivering more trains, more often.

Cross River Rail could be ready to service the South-East by 2024. Click here and au/37 for tunnelbuilder archive. Visit https://crossriverrail.qld.gov.au/  and http://statements.qld.gov.au/.
