The public notification period for the Calvert to Kagaru project draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) closed on Monday 8 March 2021.

The draft EIS was available online, at ARTC offices, selected local libraries as well as the State Library and the National library in Canberra.

In addition, two hard copies were provided to the project’s Community Consultative Committee for viewing in the community.

Forty USBs containing the draft EIS were also distributed, upon request, to community members.

The project team received over 100 direct enquiries from the community to help with their submissions on the draft EIS. More than 800 submissions have been received.

Six information sessions were held in January and February with 187 community members attending the sessions. We thank all attendees for their interest in and contribution to the project’s EIS phase.

A draft summary of findings of the project’s EIS was also made available to the community. The summary of findings provides a high-level overview of each EIS chapter, the technical studies undertaken and prompts to locate more detailed information on EIS chapters.

The Queensland Coordinator-General will now assess the draft EIS and public submissions.

Our project team is still available to discuss the project if you have any questions. Please call us on 1800 732 761, email inlandrailqld@artc.com.au or visit the project webpage for more information.
