Gabba Station – Cross River Rail Infrastructure Project
Deputy Premier and Treasurer Jackie Trad unveiled a concept for the future of the precinct around the Gabba including a land bridge to span Main Street providing a ‘front door’ for sports fans
Ms Trad said fans will begin accessing the Gabba via the new Cross River Rail underground station in 2024 which would also facilitate the remake of the whole 6.5-hectare Woolloongabba site.
“Plans are for the whole city block, which includes the Landcentre, old South Brisbane Dental Hospital and Goprint sites, to be completely transformed over the next decade.
“$2 million dollars has been approved as part of the Cross River Rail project to begin planning and start the consultation process with potential investors and the community over the coming months,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
“While a station to stadium connection will make game days easier for fans and families, new and improved public spaces and facilities will encourage even more visitors to the suburb outside of major event days
The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority will now work with key stakeholders including Brisbane City Council, Stadiums Queensland and the Department of Housing and Public Works to develop a precinct plan for the new Gabba Station.
