Megaprojects that will transform Brisbane have turned two of the inner city‘s busiest stations into crammed mazes.
Commuters entering or leaving Fortitude Valley station are forced to navigate a confusing maze of one-way corridors while the Valley Metro redevelopment of the above shopping centre gets under way.
Meanwhile, Cross River Rail works are funnelling commuters through Roma Street station into a cramped and crowded passageway.
Videos taken by The Courier-Mail show commuters navigating their way from the gate line to the street at both stations can take up to a minute.
Demolition of the Brisbane Transit Centre, described as Brisbane’s ugliest building. Picture: SuppliedIt comes as a flurry of major projects look set to transform Brisbane in coming years.
Demolition of the Brisbane Transit Centre at Roma Street, to make way for the new underground Cross River Rail platforms, means the busy exit into the city’s legal and police precinct can become cramped during peak-hour.
The new Roma Street has been described as Brisbane’s ‘Grand Central.’
“Cross River Rail is not only changing the face of southeast Queensland forever, it’s changing the lives of thousands of Queenslanders during construction,” State Development Minister Kate Jones told The Courier-Mail recently.
Meanwhile, a stunning redevelopment of the once run-down Valley Metro precinct will see cinemas and a full-line Woolworths supermarket added right above Fortitude Valley Station by early 2021.
