About this event

Presented by Mango Murphy, Project Director Moreton Bay Rail Link, Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Moreton Bay Rail Link will deliver a 12.6 km dual-track passenger rail line between Petrie and Kippa-Ring, including six new rail stations at Kallangur, Murrumba Downs, Mango Hill, Kinsellas Road, Rothwell and Kippa-Ring.

The Moreton Bay Rail Link will:

  • provide a more reliable, economical, and faster alternative to driving to Brisbane's Central Business District during peak periods
  • help reduce congestion on the road network, including the Bruce Highway, and free up capacity for journeys that can't be made using public transport
  • provide sustainable and active transport options that reduce carbon emissions — every full train on the new line will take about 600 cars off the road
  • provide better access to major employment centres both within and outside the Moreton Bay region
  • help attract investment to the area and create business opportunities
  • act as a catalyst for growth along the alignment, with stations becoming hubs of new development in the region.

The stations are now completed and drivers are currently being trained on the new track and signalling systems.

This is a free event courtesy of your QLD ICE Local Association under taken jointly with the Queensland Section of the Permanent Way Institute. Please register your intention to attend by emailing: so we know approximate numbers for food and drinks.
