QR calls for comment on proposed rail link

Queensland's coordinator-general is calling for public comment on Queensland Rail's proposal to build a rail line to link to Wiggins Island Coal Terminal.

The terms of reference have been released for the $500 million rail upgrade.

Queensland Rail wants to build a new line linking the Moura short line in the south of the city to the north coast line in the north.

Some sections of the northern line will be expanded to four tracks.

There are also plans for a rolling stock maintenance yard in the industrial development site of Aldoga.

Queensland Rail has developed the new plan after public consultation on the new Wiggins Island Coal Terminal raised concerns about moving coal on existing rail lines in growing rural residential areas.

If the project gets the go ahead, construction would start in 2010, with trains operating two years later.

Public submissions for the project will close next month.
