Ekka Station Under Construction, Public Transport Changes for 2023

Minister for Transport and Main Roads and Minister for Digital Services The Honourable Mark Bailey

New Ekka Station takes shape as Ekka public transport changes announced for 2023

  • Works are progressing well on Cross River Rail at the new 365 day-a-year Ekka Station
  • Because the old Ekka station had to be demolished to build the new station, it is not available for Ekka 2023.
  • People will still be able to take public transport to the Ekka, with multiple alternative travel options including nearby bus and train stations, bus shuttles and special services for passengers with accessibility needs.

Works are progressing well on the new year-round Ekka station being delivered through Cross River Rail, with the old station building and platforms demolished, and tracks recently installed over a new 150-metre-long rail bridge that will form part of the new station.

The old Ekka station had to be demolished to make way for the new station so it will not be in operation for this year’s Ekka.

There will still be plenty of transport options available to Ekka goers, including trains and buses from nearby stops and stations, and additional shuttle services.

Specific information about travel options will be available closer to the event.
