Aside from Banyo Station, Bundamba Station will also undergo some upgrades. Queensland Rail has released the final designs for both stations, encouraging feedback from the local community via an online survey from Monday 14 February to 5:00 p.m. Friday 25 February 2022. 

The works are part of the Queensland Government’s $500 million investment in the Station Accessibility Upgrade program across South East Queensland, which seeks to improve the customer experience and accessibility for all customers on the network.

The Station Accessibility Upgrade Program by Queensland Rail focused on upgrading stations and facilities in the State to provide a service that is accessible, easy to get to, and easy to use.

Queensland Rail said these upgrades will significantly improve access for all customers, particularly people with disability, older people, people traveling with prams or luggage, and people recovering from injury.

“We are progressively upgrading stations across the South East Queensland rail network to make them accessible for all customers,” said Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey.

“These important upgrades make a big difference in the lives of locals who rely on public transport to get around and I’m pleased to see this next stage of the upgrade get underway,” Mr Bailey added.

Member for Nudgee Leanne Linard was pleased to share artist impressions for Banyo station with her community, which for the first time provided a glimpse into how the project will transform the existing station. 

“This upgrade is welcomed by my community who have pushed for these improvements for a long time,” Ms Linard said in a media release.

“The benefits this will deliver will reach far and wide for all those who rely on public transport on a regular basis,” Ms Linard said.
