Roma Street Cross River Rail

Key details

The Roma Street Cross River Rail (CRR) Priority Development Area (PDA) was declared on 13 December 2019.

This PDA was declared at the request of the Cross River Rail Delivery Authority (CRRDA) to assist with the delivery of the CRR project, and to provide unique opportunities for urban development, economic stimulation, and job creation, including planning for integrated recreation and entertainment facilities.

The Roma Street CRR PDA is approximately 32 hectares. It is situated on the western edge of Brisbane’s city centre, providing major transit orientated redevelopment opportunities.
