Corinda railway station is located on the Main line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the Brisbane suburb of Corinda.

History[edit]

Corinda station opened in 1875 as South Brisbane Junction, being renamed Corinda in 1888. In 1884, a branch line was built from Corinda to the South Brisbane wharves.[1] The branch line is now known as the Corinda-Yeerongpilly line.

The station was rebuilt in 1960 as part of the quadruplication of the line from Roma Street.[2] In 2010, the quadruplication was extended to Darra as part of the construction of the Springfield line.[3]

Services[edit]

Corinda is served by City network services operating from Nambour, Caboolture, Petrie and Bowen Hills to Springfield Central, Ipswich and Rosewood.[4][5]

During peak hours, trains ran between Central and Corinda via Tennyson, Yeerongpilly and the Corinda-Yeerongpilly line until replaced by Brisbane Transport's route 104 in June 2011.[6]

Corinda is also served by Traveltrain's twice weekly Westlander service travelling between Brisbane and Charleville.[7]
