Robinson Road Open Level Crossing replacement project

Robinson Road Open Level Crossing
Replacement Project
Project update – August 2014
Project Nears Completion
The Robinson Road Open Level Crossing Replacement Project in Geebung is on track to be
completed this month, three months ahead of schedule.
Works planned to be undertaken this month include:
Completing and commissioning the new pedestrian overpass bridge at Geebung Station
completing streetscape works at the commuter car park and plaza area on the northern
side of Geebung Station
reopening Morrisby Street to Newman Road to one-way traffic
completing streetscape rehabilitation works in the Geebung retail precinct
completing works for the Zillman Waterholes Bikeway Extension.
Geebung Station access
The GO Alliance and Queensland Rail are working closely together to complete the new
pedestrian overpass bridge this month.
Until this bridge opens, changes to Geebung Station access will remain in place with pedestrian
access to platforms one and two across the open level crossing closed. The nearest accessible
stations providing assisted access are Zillmere and Sunshine stations.
Once the bridge is opened, access to platforms one and two will be reinstated via the new
pedestrian overpass bridge.

The $199 million Robinson Road Open Level Crossing Replacement Project will deliver an
important east-west connection by providing a new road-over-rail overpass, connecting Robinson
Road East and Robinson Road West. Jointly funded by Brisbane City Council and the
Queensland Government, the project will improve safety, connectivity and travel times and
reduce road congestion in the area.
Brisbane City Council has partnered with BMD Constructions and SMEC Australia to form the
Geebung Overpass (GO) Alliance to design and construct the project by late 2014.
