Field investigations for the Calvert to Kagaru section of the Inland Rail Project are set to begin in the project study area.
Inland Rail is a once-in-a-generation project, connecting regional Australia to domestic and international markets, transforming the way freight is moved around the country.
It will complete the ‘spine’ of the national freight network between Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, NSW and QLD.
The C2K section of Inland Rail comprises 53km of new dual gauge rail line which diverts from the West Moreton rail line near Calvert and connects to the existing Sydney to Brisbane interstate rail line at Kagaru, providing convenient access for freight to major distribution centres at Bromelton and Acacia Ridge.
The C2K project is in the feasibility stage and an Environmental Impact Statement is being developed.
From early April 2018, the project team will undertake a range of investigations throughout the project study area, including geotechnical, flooding and hydrology studies and ecological, noise and air quality investigations.
The Inland Rail team will provide a range of consultation opportunities throughout this phrase and will be advertised in advance.
Project consultation sessions will be held in the Scenic Rim in the coming weeks.
