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.
Watch a fly-through of the project
Get a birds-eye view of the Calvert to Kagaru project. This video shows the alignment with the current rail and road earthworks as well as bridges and culverts, as of May 2019. The fly-through is for illustration purposes and for discussion during community consultations in May 2019.
To get a sense of what your community will look like after the project has been completed, check out our visualisations of the proposed design.

Billy cart derby brings childhood memories to life again
The smell of bacon and egg burgers, coffee, essential oils and soaps aren’t the only things that get our teams excited to be up with the birds on local market days. We enjoy catching up with our communities at these events.
