Did you know that the Cross River Rail will transform Dutton Park Station, one of Brisbane’s oldest and most outdated train stations, into a more modern facility?

Concept designs for the Dutton Park Station were released in October 2021, which will include new entry points along Noble Street, Kent Street. and Annerley Road. There will be two raised platforms for easier boarding and disembarkment and a new pedestrian overpass with a lift to the platforms. The rebuild is expected to fix the old station’s long-standing issues and improve public transport use to benefit the community.

The transport hub will also have plenty of shade canopies, drinking fountains, and a section for bike storage for the commuters.

Dutton Park Station highlights:

  • New station entry points on Noble Street, Kent Street and Annerley Road including shade canopies, seating, drinking fountains and accessible entry points and footpaths
  • Two new high-level platforms for improved customer accessibility
  • An overpass providing connectivity between Noble Street and Annerley Road including one lift and a staircase to each platform
  • Station buildings including ticket office, staff facilities and a public accessible toilet
  • Platform canopies for weather protection, seating, bins and improved wayfinding signage
  • Integrated transport connection at the Noble Street entry with an adjacent bus stop
  • Provision for Kent Street accessible parking and Kiss ‘n’ Ride facilities
  • Enclosed bicycle storage facilities and outdoor racks
  • Relocation of the heritage shelter to the Annerley Road station entry to become a waiting shelter.

“This will not only benefit the local community but will mean access to the nearby Princess Alexandra Hospital will be more convenient for more people as well,” Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey said.

“It’s another important part of our COVID-19 recovery plan which is strengthening our economy and creating jobs.

“We’ve worked closely with key groups to plan the upgrade, with a focus on making the station easier to access for people using wheelchairs or walking frames, and parents with prams.

“In consultation with Cross River Rail’s accessibility reference group and the Queensland Accessible Transport Advisory Council, we’re delivering what the local community needs and deserves.” 

This is one of seven stations that will undergo a complete rebuild before the Cross River Rail opens in 2025. Once completed, the Dutton Park Station will link to the rail corridor and the new underground station at Boggo Road.

Dutton Park Station was first built nearly 140 years ago. Construction of the new station is expected to begin in early 2022.
