North Coast Rail Line (Beerburrum to Nambour)

  • Stage 1 (Beerwah to Landsborough) – estimated $500 million.
  • Stage 2 (Landsborough to Nambour) – estimated $1.5 billion.

The duplication and upgrade of the North Coast Rail Line between Beerburrum and Nambour has been sought for many years to improve the reliability, speed and accessibility of rail freight operations and passenger transport services. Freight operations are severely constrained in this section of the North Coast line due to conflict with passenger services and poor track alignment.

The commitment sought is to prioritise the at least $2 billion upgrade of the North Coast Rail Line Corridor and for the Federal Government to fund in conjunction with the Queensland Government, or investigate co-funding in conjunction with the Australian Rail Track Corporation.

$2 billion
