The B2G section of Inland Rail starts at the New South Wales/Queensland border connection to the Queensland Rail South Western System through Southern Queensland to Gowrie on the outskirts of Toowoomba.

This section includes building approximately 138km of new dual gauge track and upgrading approximately 69km of existing track and will connect to the ‘missing link’ from the New South Wales side of the border.

The project is currently in the reference design stage and the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is currently under assessment.

Information stands will be on display at the following locations:

  • 1pm to 3pm Pittsworth Woolworths, Wednesday, April 5, 2023.
  • 11am to 1pm Pampas Ampol Service Station Wednesday, April 12, 2023.
  • 11am to 1pm Brookstead Park, Wednesday, May 24, 2023.

Inland Rail Delivery Director (Northern) Ed Matthews said:

‘To assist communities in understanding key information on the B2G section of Inland Rail, we are hosting drop-in sessions at Pittsworth, Pampas and Brookstead.

‘These information stands are a chance for local community members to meet members of our Stakeholder Engagement teams to talk about upcoming opportunities to be involved with Inland Rail.

‘Community members can also come along and ask any questions they have about the B2G project from where we are in the approvals pathway to how to apply for our latest Community Sponsorships and Donations program.

‘Inland Rail is about delivering real and lasting opportunities for regional communities. While we expect to generate direct and indirect supply and job opportunities during construction, we are also working to prepare communities for other project opportunities.’
