FacebooktwittermailFacebooktwittermail

The State Government has released the final designs for a multi-million-dollar upgrade of Banyo and Bundamba train stations, which will seek to improve the customer experience and accessibility for all customers.



Mark Bailey, Minister for Transport and Main Roads outlined the train station upgrade is one of two announced as part of a $500 million investment in the Station Accessibility Upgrade program.

“We are progressively upgrading stations across the South East Queensland rail network to make them accessible for all customers,” Mr Bailey said.

“These important upgrades make a big difference in the lives of locals who rely on public transport to get around and I’m pleased to see this next stage of the upgrade get underway.”

“We want everyone in the local community to access public transport safely and without barriers”.

“The upgrade will also deliver other improvements including hearing augmentation loops and tactile platform surfaces for customers requiring hearing and vision assistance, upgraded CCTV and station lighting, extended platform shelters and new wayfinding and platform signage. 

“Upon its completion, the project will provide accessible options for people with a disability, parents with prams and senior citizens to access the station platforms,” he said.



The upgrades would deliver major accessibility improvements including full-length raised platforms for improved boarding, and new additional overbridges with direct lift access to the platforms.

Leanne Linard, Member for Nudgee shared the announcement with the release of artist impressions of the new look for Banyo station providing a glimpse into how the project will transform the existing station. 

“This upgrade is welcomed by my community who have pushed for these improvements for a long time,” Ms Linard said.

“The benefits this will deliver will reach far and wide for all those who rely on public transport on a regular basis.”  

Ms Linard invited the community to provide feedback on the designs of both Banyo and Bundamba station online.

“Feedback can be provided online, via email, mail or by phoning the project team from now Monday 14 to Friday 25 February,” she said

“Queensland Rail has also consulted closely with its Accessibility Focus Group on the proposed station design and will continue seeking their guidance throughout the design process to ensure an inclusive travel experience for all customers.”
