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 approximately 145km of new dual gauge track and upgrading approximately 71km of track from the New South Wales/Queensland border, near Yelarbon, to Gowrie Junction, north west of Toowoomba in Queensland.
Once complete, Inland Rail will help producers be more competitive, connecting them 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.
The Border to Gowrie project draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) public display commenced on Saturday 23 January 2021 and concluded on Tuesday 4 May 2021.
For more information about the EIS process and next steps, visit the Queensland Coordinator-General’s website.
