For a Better Brisbane

Cross River Rail: Now one step closer

Cross River Rail is now one step closer. This nation-building impact of this project is only now becoming clearer with the release of the reference design for the project. If this project is able to secure funding (despite interstate capitals such as Melbourne and Sydney having their own rail tunnel aspirations) it will be a huge boost for Transit-Oriented Development and city building at large. Cross River Rail will support no less than three TODs or urban redevelopment projects- Yeerongpilly, Woolloongabba, and RNA Showgrounds (Exhibition station).

The project will benefit the entire region by unlocking the rail network’s core. It is this kind of infrastructure Brisbane, and South East Queensland needs. Although the price tag is big, the benefits are even bigger.
