The Calvert to Kagaru section of Inland Rail includes building a new dual gauge track.
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 985m tunnel through the Teviot Range, 31 new bridges and up to four crossing loops.
Revised reference design
We are pleased to share the revised reference design for the project with you, and the news that we are removing seven of the eight proposed level crossings.
In developing the project’s revised reference design, we have considered property impacts, community and stakeholder feedback, safety, environment, technical viability, operational restrictions and constructability.
You can find details of the changes on the consultation page. We will start landowner and public consultation on the revised design in late October.

Inland Rail Review outcomes for the Calvert to Kagaru project
The Australian Government has announced that the Inland Rail Service Offering of double-stacked trains will operate between the intermodal terminal at Beveridge, Victoria, and a proposed terminal at Ebenezer, Queensland, with a single-stacked connection to be built between Ebenezer and Kagaru.
The Calvert to Kagaru project, which connects to Ebenezer, will progress with a revised scope that we are in the process of determining with the Government.
The Australian Government has agreed in principle that a terminal should be developed at Ebenezer to support Inland Rail operations, subject to its consideration of the outcome of the Brisbane Inland Rail Intermodal Terminal Business Case.
We will update this webpage with the revised project scope once it is determined.
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.
