The 53km Calvert to Kagaru section of Inland Rail includes building a new dual gauge track to provide convenient access for freight to major distribution centres at Bromelton and Acacia Ridge in Queensland.
It is one of three Inland Rail projects in Queensland that will be delivered under a Public Private Partnership funding arrangement.
The route will divert from the West Moreton rail line near Calvert and connect to the existing Sydney to Brisbane interstate rail line at Kagaru. In addition to the new track, the works are expected to include a 1.1km tunnel through the Teviot Range, 27 new bridges and up to four crossing loops.
This project is currently in the reference design stage. During this time, we are conducting various technical and environmental studies and consulting with landowners and other key stakeholders to finalise plans for this project.
Draft EIS public display
The Calvert to Kagaru project draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) public display commenced on Saturday 19 December 2020 and concluded on Monday 8 March 2021.

Building new dual gauge track, a 1.1km tunnel, 27 new bridges and up to four crossing loops
The Calvert to Kagaru section follows the protected Southern Freight Rail Corridor (SFRC) which links the West Moreton line near Calvert to the interstate rail line near Kagaru, north of Beaudesert.
We have developed interactive consultation and noise maps for the project.
Drop a pin on the consultation map to add your comment. Your feedback will help us get a better understanding of key issues from a community perspective.
The noise map shows the noise levels predicted from the railway operations in 2027.
