Open Level Crossing Elimination Program

Railway open level crossings are emerging as major congestion and safety concerns in the Brisbane urban area. These issues are compounded by the desire to increase rail public transport and freight services, which in turn increase the frequency and closure times at key at-grade rail crossings in the city. The recently completed joint State and Local government projects to provide grade separated rail crossings in Telegraph Road, Bracken Ridge and Robinson Road, Geebung have significantly improved travel movements in the Brisbane northern suburbs.

Concept investigations undertaken by Council and the Department of Transport and Main Roads have identified a number of priority at-grade rail crossings for grade separation. The five top sites are:

  • Boundary Road, Coopers Plains ($220 Million)
  • Cavendish Road, Coorparoo ($320 Million)
  • Beams Road, Carseldine ($140 Million)
  • South Pine Road, Alderley ($250 Million)
  • Wacol Station Road, Wacol ($200 Million)

15% to be funded by Brisbane City Council

$1.13 billion
