Gowrie to Helidon project update April 2023

Thank you to everyone that attended the Gowrie to Helidon project's social performance and sustainability workshop in Gowrie Junction on 16 March.

Your local knowledge and input is invaluable to the project and we thank those that contributed on the night.

The social performance legacy scoping activity is still available online. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to click the link above to complete this activity. It’ll help us understand community views on potential legacy projects in your area. We will conduct the activity at the upcoming Gowrie to Calvert Community Consultative Committee meeting as well.

We’re also aware that community members are interested to learn more about how our proposed design will interface with the existing environment and landscape.

Here are several engagement resources you can explore:

  1. Consultation interactive map
  2. Project fly-through video
  3. Toowoomba Range tunnel interactive visualisation
  4. Static project map
  5. G2H project videos

If you need further information or clarifications, please reach out to us via email inlandrailqld@artc.com.au or phone 1800 732 761.

Upcoming information sessions
We have several EIS information sessions on the revised draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) coming up so the community can understand the latest design refinements.

The next session will be on flora, fauna and offsets:

  • Date: 19 April 2023
  • Time: 6pm–8pm
  • Venue: Murphys Creek Community Centre, Murphys Creek

Keep an eye on the G2H project events webpage – we’re working on finalising the session details and will upload the information here once available.

We will also advertise the sessions in your local newspapers, on social media and inform you via email.
