Auchenflower Rail Station Upgrade Now Complete

Auchenflower Station Upgrade Completed

The Auchenflower rail station upgrade has been completed. More upgrades of other Queensland Rail stations are scheduled to follow suit, with major works to commence within 2023.

The station upgrade was designed to allow a single access path from accessible station entrances to the assisted boarding points. The project aims to support various types of patrons including those using mobility devices, people with hearing or vision impairments, seniors, people with injuries and those travelling with prams and luggage.

To achieve this, the project involved building a raised platform and upgrading accessible parking and essential station and customer facilities. A new station building, and ticket office are also included in the upgrade along with additional shelter and upgraded security cameras and lighting.

Meanwhile, the new pedestrian footbridge is provided with lift access whilst the hearing augmentation loop, tactile platform surfaces, security cameras and lighting were all upgraded.

Lastly, new wayfinding and platform signage around the core zone were also installed.

The completion of the Auchenflower station upgrade follows similar projects already delivered recently including East Ipswich, Dakabin and Cannon Hill stations.

Transport Minister Mark Bailey said that major upgrade works will also start later this year on five additional stations namely: Banyo, Bundamba, Burpengary, Lindum and Morningside train stations.

Queensland Rail CEO Kat Stapleton said that being one the busiest hubs, Auchenflower station accommodates under half a million passenger trips each year and caters to customers using multiple modes of transport.

The Auchenflower station upgrade was delivered under the $500 million Station Accessibility Upgrade program.
