The last 10 years in Brisbane have been prosperous, and a large amount of changes designed to increase liveability in the city has brought expanded infrastructure projects.
New large-scale infrastructure precincts in Newstead, Hamilton, Bowen Hills and West End are just some of the great things happening around the city. Projects like the Cross River Rail are full steam ahead, with the recent announcement of the Priority Development Area (PDA) to support the delivery of underground Albert Street station in the CBD. The Albert Street Cross River Rail PDA consists of an area approximately 3,858m2 in size and is located in line with central Brisbane City Centre corridors that connect the city Botanic Gardens and Queen Street Mall via Albert Street.
