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.
