Chocolatier Gerrard Gosens fears his Brisbane CBD store will suffer death by Cross River Rail as work begins on the $5.4 billion project.
Mr Gosens said his Chocolate Moments store took a $100,000 hit in lost takings this year when foot traffic dwindled as businesses were shuttered, with much of Albert Street – between Charlotte and Mary streets – now boarded up and splashed with Cross River Rail branding.

A new underground train station and public plaza will be built at Albert Street as part of the 10.2 kilometre Cross River Rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, with construction to be completed in 2024.
Albert Street will be permanently closed to vehicles at the end of September ahead of construction, a move Mr Gosens feared would accentuate the dearth of pedestrians in the area.
