July 2019 – Queensland Rail are seeking feedback from regular Dakabin Station users with a disability or special need, in preparation for the planning of construction works. They are after any information those commuters might have so that QR can determine their access needs and plan assistance required during works.

Interested commuters can contact the Project Team on:
Free call 1800 722 203, or
Email stationsupgrade@qr.com.au

If you would prefer to stay anonymous feel free to send me your feedback via private message or email: admin@dakabinstationactiongroup.com, and I will pass on your feedback on your behalf.

Thank you for helping shape this upgrade and for helping us ensure Dakabin Station will be safe and accessible for our community!

It is vital that the community, both individuals and organisations, have their say on the designs. No one knows Dakabin Station better than the people who use (or can’t use) it so it’s up to us to ensure the upgrade makes Dakabin Station safe, accessible and future-proofed for our community.
