$30M Dakabin train station upgrade

Improved public transport facilities is something I am very passionate about, and have worked hard to deliver in our vibrant, growing community of Murrumba.

I’m delighted residents who catch the train from Dakabin will soon benefit from more parking, better accessibility, and security upgrades at the station.

There are 7,339 people using the station each week, and that number is rising steadily.

That’s why I have acted to ensure our local infrastructure keeps pace with our growth.

This $30 million upgrade will support around 250 jobs for Queenslanders in trades such as carpentry, electrical, painting, plumbing, labouring, roofing, glazing and traffic control—which is a great win for the local economy.

Over the last few months, I’ve talked to so many people who told me it was the number one thing they wanted fixed.

While you might not see any shovel work just yet, the design and engineering work will start immediately.

And when the concept designs are released next year, I’ll invite the QR community engagement team to Dakabin to explain how construction impacts will be managed to ensure minimal inconvenience for passengers.

I’m really looking forward to the completion of the works, when we will get to benefit from— more car parks, a new footbridge with lifts, new bus infrastructure, raising platform sections to provide easier access to the trains, features such as hearing aid loops, and upgraded lighting and CCTV.
