Queensland’s Cross River Rail Project authority has revealed the designs for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge in Brisbane that will connect the new Boggo Road underground station with existing transport infrastructure.

The 480-metre-long bridge crossing freight and passenger rail lines will link the new Boggo Road and existing Park Road rail and Boggo Road bus stations west of the tracks, with the Princess Alexandra Hospital and the PAH South East Busway platforms to the east.

The bridge will provide faster and more convenient walking and cycling connections, easier access to the local cycle network and improved connectivity to public transport services.

The new bridge, which will include lifts on both sides, dedicated cycle and pedestrian paths, seating, shade and rest stops, will be accessibility compliant and is designed to meet safety requirements to pass over the rail corridor.

The bridge and the new underground station it connects to will see Boggo Road become South East Queensland’s second busiest transport interchange, with over 22,000 commuters using the new station each weekday by 2036.

Boggo Road station’s bridge forms part of the Cross River Rail project works, a new 10.2 kilometre rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, which includes 5.9 kilometres of twin tunnels under the Brisbane River and the CBD.

Construction for Boggo Road station’s bridge is due to commence from March and is expected to be completed in late 2023.
