QLD Technical Lunch & Learn Meeting

The IQA QLD Branch invite you to a Technical Lunch & Learn meeting & presentation of the Cross River Rail Project.


Date:  Friday 30th April 2021 

Time:  12noon - 3pm

Venue:  Victoria Park Function Centre
               309 Herston Rd, Herston

Cross River Rail is 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, four new underground stations, eight rebuilt above ground stations and three new stations on the Gold Coast. The project also includes new signalling technology, the European Train Control System, which will allow trains to operate closer together, enabling trains to run more efficiently and with greater safety. Each of Cross River Rail’s high-capacity stations will generate unique opportunities for urban renewal, economic development, the revitalisation of inner-city precincts and new employment opportunities.

Cross River Rail has now entered its second year of construction and work is underway at over 10 worksites across South East Queensland. 2021 is the ‘Year of Tunnelling’ for the project, with two Tunnel Boring Machines – Else and Merle now excavating 3.6 kilometres of twin tunnels from Woolloongabba to Normanby, and major works continuing at all underground stations. Significant works have also commenced at the Exhibition station and on the southern stations between Fairfield to Salisbury.

Join Jeremy Kruger, Project Director – Tunnel, Stations & Development from the Cross River Rail Delivery Authority to hear more about Queensland’s $5.4 billion priority infrastructure project, which will transform how people travel to, through and from the CBD, and how Cross River Rail will help Brisbane continue to evolve as a world-class city.
