Cross River Rail Project – Changes to the approved Roma Street station precinct scope of work

Closed 13 May 2024

Opened 29 Apr 2024


Queensland's Coordinator-General invites you to have your say on an application for project change for the Cross River Rail project (the project).

In December 2012, the Coordinator-General published the evaluation report on the project’s environmental impact statement, determining the project could proceed subject to conditions. 

The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority (the Delivery Authority) is leading the development, procurement and delivery of the project. The Delivery Authority recently applied to the Coordinator-General to change the scope of works approved for the Roma Street station. The change involves:

  • closure of Herschel Street to vehicles between George and Roma streets
  • adjusting signalised intersections, footpaths, cycle infrastructure and urban design to accommodate the new arrangements
  • maintaining the Inner Northern Busway at its current location, removing the previously proposed design to shift the busway underground as part of the new Roma Street station
  • maintaining the current intersection arrangement at Roma Street and Parkland Boulevard.

The Coordinator-General will consider all properly made submissions before preparing a change report either approving or refusing the change.
