Hamilton Reach - rail extension
« on: October 21, 2010, 06:11:41 PM »
There was a report on Channel 7 News this evening that claimed the QR railway line would be extended into Hamilton Reach.
There have been vague suggestions of this before but this is the first direct reporting I have heard.

A CityCat terminal is also planned for Hamilton Reach.

An extension of the rail line is achievable via a cutting underneath KSD ...

What part is Hamilton Reach?  Down near Hamilton Park, the Golf Course, or the east side of the Gateway?

There is a need for some duplication at a minimum if the rail is to be extended.

Hamilton Reach is the 'new suburb' from where Hamilton is marked to the golf club.

The open industrial area is to be converted into thousands of high density homes etc.

Declared on 28 March 2008 and located six kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, the Northshore Hamilton Urban Development Area (UDA) covers 304-hectares of land, with a two kilometre river frontage.

The Northshore Hamilton UDA includes land between Kingsford Smith Drive and the Brisbane River, extending from Bretts Wharf to the west and the Gateway Motorway to the east.

The Northshore Hamilton UDA is close to some of Brisbane’s most important economic drivers, including the Brisbane Airport and the Australia Trade Coast precinct.
