- Project Name Queensland Rail Station Accessibility Upgrade Program
- Client Queensland Rail
- Location Queensland, Australia
- Status In progress
The upgrades to Morningside, Lindum, Banyo and Buranda Stations, as part of the Queensland Rail Station Accessibility Upgrade Program, will improve accessibility and make it safer for customers to travel, especially those in wheelchairs or using mobility devices, people with hearing or vision impairment, seniors, people with injuries and those travelling with prams and luggage.
The scopes of work across the four stations include raising station platforms to bring the platform and train doors closer together and reducing the gap to make boarding safer and easier. Customers will now be able to catch a lift to a station overpass and then onto the platforms. Other improvements include upgraded customer facilities like accessible toilets, disability-compliant ticket windows, improved seating, and extended platform shelters.
Laing O’Rourke will also install hearing augmentation loops, tactile floor indicators, new wayfinding signage, information screens and better security through CCTV and lighting upgrades.
