Moreton Bay Rail Link consultation outcomes

The once-in-a-generation project, the Moreton Bay Rail Link (MBRL), will open in mid-2016.

The project will transform the region, delivering:

  • 14km dual-track passenger rail line from Lawton to Kippa-Ring
  • six new stations at Kallangur, Murrumba Downs, Mango Hill, Mango Hill East, Rothwell and Kippa-Ring
  • an upgrade to Petrie station
  • more than 650 new weekly train services
  • trains every six to 12 minutes in peak times
  • express services all day
  • a consistent 55 minute journey between Kippa-Ring and Brisbane Central stations.

To provide an integrated network for the region, some changes were proposed for the local bus network.

From Monday 2 November until Sunday 13 December 2015, nine community consultation sessions were held and an online survey was open for you to have your say on the proposed bus network and draft train timetable.

We have now taken all your feedback into consideration and finalised your network.

  • an updated Moreton Bay Region network booklet
  • letterbox drops
  • signs at key stations and bus stops
  • through our website.
