Last quarter was a busy one for our Helidon to Calvert project stakeholder engagement team – we held a total of 18 community drop-in information sessions.

More than 700 community members attended the sessions and we thank everyone for taking the time to drop in for a chat and provide feedback.

Among the main concerns we’ve heard from you during these sessions are noise and vibration impacts, level crossings and flooding. Our team has spoken with, and taken feedback from, many landholders, neighbours and community groups about these topics which are all addressed as part of the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process.

The Helidon to Calvert project draft EIS was on public display from 31 March 2021 until 23 June 2021. Six information sessions were held in April and May to help the community understand how to read the draft EIS and how to provide submissions to the Queensland Coordinator-General.

We expect these submissions to be provided to us by the Coordinator-General in due course for response.

We are also starting to see growing community interest in capitalising on the business growth opportunities which Inland Rail will bring to the region during construction and once Inland Rail is operational.

We will likely organise more drop-in sessions about the draft EIS and other topics before the end of 2021.

In the meantime, we continue to actively engage with our stakeholders including the Lockyer Valley Regional Council, Queensland Government agencies and the wider community to deliver the best outcomes for the project.

If you have any questions please email us on inlandrailqld@artc.com.au or call 1800 732 761.
