Cross River Rail Business Case now available

24 August 2017

Building Queensland has fulfilled the requirements of its first Ministerial Direction, making the Cross River Rail Business Case publicly available.In accordance with the Direction, the Business Case has been developed to facilitate awareness and make accessible relevant information about the Cross River Rail Project.

The Business Case released today includes updated information on population statistics and government policy changes in the 14 months since the Cross River Rail Detailed Business Case was provided to government. These policy changes include the impacts associated with the European Train Control System (ETCS)—Inner City project implementation and the introduction of the Fairer Fares package, as well as updated demographic information.

The Cross River Rail Detailed Business Case 2016 was developed in accordance with Building Queensland’s best practice Business Case Development Framework. It went through the required process for development of a rigorous Business Case, including detailed transport and economic modelling conducted by expert advisers. This modelling was based on estimates of demand for public transport informed by factors including population and employment growth sourced from the Queensland Government Statistician.

Commercially sensitive information has not been included in the Business Case to protect the state’s commercial position during future project stages. This includes information that was provided during market sounding processes on a confidential basis or information that may affect the procurement process for the project.

The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority has been tasked with leading the procurement and delivery of the project.
