This 49km Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and Bromelton section of track needs to be modified to provide sufficient height and width to support the safe running of double-stacked freight trains along the interstate route.
Upgrades will need to be made both south from Kagaru to Bromelton and north from Kagaru to Brisbane’s major intermodal terminal at Acacia Ridge.
Enhancements to the existing track will support dual gauge operations. The project crosses the three local government areas of Scenic Rim, Logan City and Brisbane City. This project is currently in the reference design stage. During this time, we are conducting various studies and consulting with landowners and other key stakeholders to finalise plans for this project.
