Roma Street Busway to Undergo $250M Transformation

 The Queensland State Government has announced funding to the tune of $250 million and plans have been unveiled for the Roma Street busway interchange.

  

The 650m long underground interchange, which will be located directly under Roma Street plaza, is set to create a “seamless connection” for the Inner Northern Busway to the $5.4 billion Cross River Rail. 

 

Deputy Premier Jackie Trad said the additional transport infrastructure project will work towards more jobs for the south-east. 

 

“The Cross River Rail will unlock much-needed extra capacity for the entire South East Queensland rail network and generate 7,700 jobs.” 

 

“Value-adding a new, $250 million high-capacity underground interchange for the Inner Northern Busway to the Cross River Rail Project will support 480 jobs and a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reshape the Roma Street Station precinct,” Ms Trad said. 

 

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the upgrade will help take cars off the road and make for a better experience at “Queensland’s busiest public transport hub.”

 

“Queenslanders are backing public transport, with a record 182 million trips taken across the south east last financial year.”

 

“Having the Roma Street section of the Northern Busway underground will mean better integration of bus services with the new underground train station, which will make it more convenient for commuters,” Mr Bailey said. 

 

The new and improved Roma Street Station is anticipated to be 27 metres below ground level and will includes 220m platforms which will accommodate nine-car trains.

  

Crossriverrail.qld.gov.au states the demolishment of the existing Roma Street Station buildings will take place later this year, with the entire precinct to be completed by 2025.

Hannah Schuhmann is confident the proposed improvement of the Roma Street busway will encourage more visitors to the City, while making the commute for those who live and work in the CBD much easier. This planned upgrade is just one of many infrastructure projects currently underway and places Brisbane on track to become a World City within the next 5 years.
