Works and planning
The Calvert to Kagaru section of Inland Rail generally follows the protected Southern Freight Rail Corridor (SFRC) that was gazetted as a future rail corridor by the Queensland Government in 2010.
This corridor links the West Moreton line near Calvert to the interstate rail line near Kagaru, north of Beaudesert. The connection will provide convenient access for freight to major proposed industrial developments at Ebenezer in the City of Ipswich, and at Bromelton near Beaudesert in the Scenic Rim Region.
Work is expected to include building:
- 53km of new dual gauge track
- a 1.1km tunnel through the Teviot Range
- 27 new bridges
- up to four crossing loops.
