Draft EIS summary of findings
The Border to Gowrie summary of findings provides a high-level overview of each chapter of the EIS. It summarises the major findings of the technical studies and shows where in the EIS more detailed information can be found.
We understand that some local residents have concerns about potential amenity impacts on their properties once Inland Rail is operational. Our environmental assessments have looked at a broad range of factors, including operational train noise, air quality and train volumes, to determine what the impacts may be and propose mitigation, if required.
You can find more information about how we are working with you to address impacts on the understanding impacts page.
Finalising the rail corridor
The current Inland Rail route has been fully considered, informed by 15 years of rigorous analysis, engineering design and business case development. ARTC is investigating the feasibility of the current route and can only investigate alternative routes if directed by the Australian Government.
For more details please refer to the Inland Rail Route History. Whilst we are not able to change the route, we are committed to working with local communities to find solutions to concerns where possible. For example, where noise mitigation is proposed, we will liaise with impacted landowners to determine the best approach.
View the Route History page for more information on the decisions that have informed our route.
Your consultative committee
A Community Consultative Committee (CCC) represents local communities in the Border to Gowrie area.
This CCC provides a forum to share project information, discuss topics of interest, and address any issues or community concerns.
Importantly, it also provides an opportunity for community representatives to share their knowledge and experience on key issues with the Inland Rail team.
Leave your feedback on the interactive map
We have developed an interactive map of the current project design. The map is currently closed for comment while the draft EIS is on public display.

Inland Rail 101: rail gauges
Rail terminology, or train speak, can be tricky to decipher. To give you the inside track (pun intended), we’ll be sharing a series of diagrams and visualisations which explain some of the terms, designs, and construction methodologies we use at Inland Rail. First up, rail gauges.

How we’re managing property acquisition in Queensland
If you’re a landowner living along the proposed alignment, you may have some questions about how Inland Rail may impact you and your community. We are commencing preliminary conversations with landowners and communities during the project’s environmental and planning assessment phases to talk about potential impacts in more detail.
