The Border to Gowrie section of Inland Rail will connect one of Australia’s most productive farming regions to markets across the country.
This section includes building 138km of new dual gauge track and upgrading 69km of track from the New South Wales/Queensland border, near Yelarbon, to Gowrie Junction, north west of Toowoomba in Queensland.
Once complete, it will help producers be more competitive, using rail to connect to markets in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth more efficiently, more reliably and in larger volumes.
The Border to Gowrie project is now in the reference design stage. We have conducted field and geotechnical investigations, modelling and community feedback, and are preparing to finalise our designs.
