Environmental and site investigations continue to occur during reference design stage as we consult with property owners, councils and other key stakeholders. Our ongoing investigations include:
- geotechnical and ecological studies
- flooding and hydrology studies
- noise, air quality and vibration surveys
- social and heritage surveys
Environment planning and approvals
We have submitted an application to the Office of the Coordinator-General for their consideration of Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and Bromelton as a ‘coordinated project.’
A number of factors may lead to a project being declared ‘coordinated’, including complex approvals and environmental and infrastructure requirements. If the project is declared a ‘coordinated project’, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is needed.
We will advise local communities of the outcome and provide details of our upcoming consultation program upon the Coordinator-General reaching a decision. We will seek your input about the project via a variety of channels, including information sessions.

November 2020 project update for Kagaru to Acacia Ridge & Bromelton
The Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and Bromelton project is nearing the completion of design and environmental investigations required for the primary approvals document. During this stage, we have consulted and collected feedback on various aspects of the project and our engineers are using it to inform the design of the project.

September 2020 project update for Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and Bromelton
Baseline noise and vibration monitoring has now been completed on site and is being used to model potential impacts. Based on the results of the operational modelling, we will develop appropriate mitigation measures in line with the current regulatory requirements for a rail enhancement project. Ongoing monitoring will be undertaken during the construction phase.
