The Cross River Rail project will see the development of a new rail line underneath Brisbane River, the construction of new high-capacity underground stations at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street, Roma Street and upgrades to eight existing aboveground stations.


With the rising population in South East Queensland, the transport network is under ever-increasing pressure. Brisbane’s current rail network only has a single river crossing and just four inner-city stations, which is causing a bottleneck and limiting the ability to run more trains. 


The increased rail services will help enable a turn-up-and-go public transport system and ease congestion pressure on major arterial roads. 


GCG is proud to support the safe delivery of the Cross River Rail through the provision of occupational hygiene services. GCG’s support will include occupational hygiene program establishment, the definition of similar exposure groups, qualitative and quantitative health hazard identification and the development and undertaking of ongoing occupational exposure monitoring to validate and assess exposure control effectiveness.


GCG’s highly capable and qualified team, consisting of Certified Occupational Hygienists, will work with the Cross River Rail project team to provide advice around managing risks to worker health in a dynamic environment by using a real, practical and balanced approach.           


Cross River Rail is a critical public transport infrastructure project and is crucial to supporting the ongoing growth and prosperity of South East Queensland. GCG is committed to providing market-leading solutions to help keep workers safe, specifically in the tunnelling and mining sector.


Cross River Rail facts and figures:

  • 2 kilometres of rail line between Dutton Park and Bowen Hills
  • 9 kilometres of tunnel under the Brisbane River
  • Creation of over 7,700 jobs over the life of the project
  • 450 new apprentice and traineeship opportunities
  • Total project investment by the Queensland Government of $5.4b
