A dedicated Mars Stadium events train platform appears to have been ruled out ahead of the 2026 Commonwealth Games.

Speaking at a public accounts and estimates committee hearing yesterday, Minister for Commonwealth Games Delivery, Jacinta Allen, said there was ‘a factor of time’ when questioned about the platform.

Commuters will be expected to rely on shuttle busses to get to and from events, with thousands expected to attend the stadium for the games.
