Queensland Rail: Repainting works to beautify Auchenflower station

Published on : Tuesday, May 27, 2014

queensland-railDuring a scheduled closure of the inner city tracks, Queensland Rail will undertake an extensive list of maintenance and upgrade works including the start of a full repaint of Auchenflower train station.

The painting will take place over the next three months, and will aim to improve the customer experience for the hundreds of customers who use Auchenflower station each day.

Queensland Rail Acting Executive General Manager Customer Service Alison Crosby said in order for the painting to be carried out, the station car park would be closed from midnight Thursday 22 May until 4.30am Monday 26 May to accommodate material deliveries and scaffolding installation.

“Although we don’t like to impact our customers, this car park closure will allow us to safely transport and manoeuvre scaffolding and other materials on to site, using a large crane,” Ms Crosby said.

“Access to the station concourse and subway will also need to be closed from 8pm Saturday 24 May until 4.30am Monday 26 May. However, to limit the impacts to our customers a shuttle taxi service will run every 15 minutes between the Auchenflower Terrace and Lang Parade sides of the station.”

From first train Monday 26 May onwards, access to the station and train services will resume as normal while painting works continue.

“All painting and scaffold removal works are expected to be completed by late August,” Ms Crosby said.

“We appreciate our customers’ patience during these works, and are excited to see the finished product which we hope will restore the Auchenflower station building to its former glory.”

During the scheduled track closure, buses will replace trains in both directions between Roma Street to Corinda, Yeerongpilly and Murarrie from 10pm Friday 23 May to last train Sunday 25 May.


Across the weekend, other major works to be carried out on the inner city lines will include track and rail replacement, overhead maintenance, platform upgrade works at South Bank station and a power upgrade at Roma Street station.
