All aboard: Multi-million upgrade for Queen Street bus station

A $3 million makeover to Brisbane’s Queen Street bus station is set to get under way on Friday following flooding in April.

The Brisbane Times has reported work would be conducted at night and on weekends. Commuters would still able to catch their normal services, but platforms were subject to change while works were ongoing.

Deputy Premier Jackie Trad said the project would make travel easier and more accessible while improving waiting areas for passengers.

“New lighting, tactile ground indicators, hand rails and seating will be installed, as well as a new ceiling and tiles,” Ms Trad said.

“During the works, passengers will have access to alternate stops and platforms to catch their normal service.”

RACQ’s Lauren Ritchie welcomed the upgrades, which were due for completion early next year.

“With more than 80,000 people using Queen Street bus station every week, it’s great to see multi-million dollar improvements getting underway,” Ms Ritchie said.

“Passengers need to be aware signage will be in place throughout the upgrades to alert them to any changes and staff will be on hand to give up-to-date information.”
