The Helidon to Calvert project is in the reference design stage


The Helidon to Calvert project was declared a ‘coordinated project’ by the Queensland Office of the Coordinator-General (OCG) in 2017.

The preliminary draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was submitted to the Coordinator-General for review in late 2019 and has now been released by the Coordinator-General for public notification and submission.

The draft EIS will be on public display from Wednesday 31 March 2021 to Wednesday 23 June 2021.

To view the draft EIS and make a submission, please visit the Coordinator-General’s website.

Your feedback will help the Coordinator-General better understand the views of the community and inform the assessment of the project.

Visit the Coordinator-General’s website for more information about coordinated projects, how projects requiring an EIS are assessed and how you can make a submission.

Engineering and environmental investigations

Future Freight Joint Venture (FFJV) has been awarded a contract to undertake engineering and environmental investigations for the Helidon to Calvert section of Inland Rail.

The work FFJV is undertaking will provide the Inland Rail team with a greater understanding of the local geography, hydrology, flora and fauna, as well as air quality, noise and social factors.

These elements will help us progress the detailed design for this project.
