Project info

Installation of the Queen Street Bus Station Platform 2 lift commenced in October 2018. The lift to Platform 2 will provide full access to Queen Street Bus Station for all passengers, including those who have difficulty using stairs.

Construction will include the installation of a lift and lift shaft from Queen Street ground level to Queen Street Bus Station Platform 2, removal of an existing decommissioned mechanical vent and the relocation of the existing stairwell.

Standard construction hours will be from 6am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday. Construction from February 2019 will include occasional night works from 7pm to 5am, for pedestrian safety reasons and to minimise busway disruption.

Relocation of the existing stairwell near the Queen Street Mall water feature will require the temporary closure of the stairs leading down to Platform 2 until mid 2019. 

Customers wishing to access Platform 2 will be diverted to the stairs approximately 50 metres away near George Street. Directional signage will be in place. Updates to the TransLink app and website will assist passengers in finding alternative routes to bus services on Platform 2.

There may be some changes to services using Platform 2 of the Queen Street Bus Station during installation of the lift. For further information on passenger services, download the MyTranslink app and visit the TransLink website or call 13 12 30.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation during these important works.
