This study was undertaken for QT in conjunction with Connell Wagner, and involved a detailed examination of the feasibility of introducing bus-rail services at Indooroopilly railway station. VLC's contribution to the study included development of detailed bus operating strategies, patronage estimation and economic evaluation of the proposal.

No, and probably because it was i) a good idea and ii) expensive, so the Gov't didn't want people to know about it because it wouldn't be getting done.

The only way I can see this happening is with resumptions, which are fine roads/tunnels but bad for public transport, mmmkay?  ::)

But as you now know it exists, you could call and ask. If they don't release it, then it would be available under RTI would it not?

Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Was looking at the rail system in Perth, and found a few good examples of Bus/Rail interchanges that would work at Indooroopilly...
I doubt the Govt would do this as they have just foolishly spent money dressing up Indro instead of doing a real solution and solving the pressing need for an interchange..
