Work on the $53 million upgrade of Burpengary railway station is expected to start next month.

It will follow this week’s State Budget including $14.3 million towards the overall cost of providing easier access to the transport system.

The “accessibility improvements” include full-length high-level platforms, a new footbridge with lifts, improved accessible parking, upgraded hearing loops and surface indicators.

Also, upgraded security cameras and lighting, new wayfinding and platform signage as well as a new station office and facilities.

Hutchinson Builders has been appointed to deliver the main construction. Early works, such as relocating overhead lines, was completed late last year and earlier in 2023.

Minor foundation work is expected to be done this weekend, followed by masts for overhead wires. Four trees are due to be removed in the week of June 26.

The site compound will be set up from July 3 on part of the car park. This area of parking will be closed during the upgrade work.

These works are part of Queensland Rail's Station Accessibility Upgrade Program focusing on upgrading station infrastructure to provide easier access to the public transport system.
