Development of the Salisbury to Beaudesert passenger rail project would provide essential public transport infrastructure to the development areas of Greater Flagstone and the south west corridor. Greater Flagstone is intended to house an estimated 120,000 people in 50,000 new homes over the next 30-50 years creating demand for 30,000 local jobs. The liveability of these areas and their ability to meet housing and employment targets is dependent on the timely delivery of public transport infrastructure and other services.
The project would also improve services for established and proposed urban development areas to the south of Brisbane through connectivity with the existing Citytrain network. There is also the potential opportunity for shared infrastructure.
