Albert Street Station: a commuter experience for a new world city

On Yuggera and Turrbal Country in Brisbane, Australia, the Cross River Rail project is set to deliver the first underground station in 120 years at Albert Street in the heart of the city.

A vital link in the new Cross River Rail network, Albert Street Station will connect city commuters via two landmark entrances to underground trains bound for Roma Street Station to the north and Woolloongabba Station to the south.

Albert Street station will be a new centre point in the middle of the CBD – a vibrant transport hub where people will meet and gather, breathing new life into the heart of the city.”

Albert Street Station celebrated a significant milestone recently with its 220m-long commuter platform and mezzanine reaching completion, 30 metres beneath the city. Over the coming months, the architectural panelling, finishes, escalators, and artwork will transform the raw concrete caverns into the populated arteries that will deliver a streamlined commuter experience tuned to a subtropical city.

Central to the Albert Street Station design will be the cantilevered canopies that provide a distinct urban marker within the city.

We took a really bold position on the architecture because we knew it was so important for the future of Southeast Queensland. This is our first step towards a more sustainable region where we prioritise public transport and elevate the experience expected of a new world city,” says Principal Keith Allen. Albert Street Station will really shift the dynamic of the city’s underground network and bring positive change above ground also.”

By 2036 more than 67,000 people will travel through the Albert Street Station each day, as it becomes the main pedestrian feeder point for QUT’s Gardens Point campus, the parliamentary precinct, Queen’s Wharf, the upgraded Eagle Street business district and the City Botanic Gardens.”
