Moreton Bay Rail Link planning moves forward

Tenderers have been shortlisted for the Moreton Bay Rail Link.

Plans are gearing ahead on the billion-dollar Moreton Bay Rail Link project, with the Queensland government announcing today (February 4) the next stage of the tendering process.

Federal infrastructure and transport minister Anthony Albanese said the tenderers applying to taking on the development have been shortlisted – indicating construction is one step closer to kicking off.

“It is essential that whoever is finally chosen to build this important piece of infrastructure project for the south-east corner has the best team and the technical capabilities behind them to see this project through to its completion,” Mr Albanese explained.

The $1.147 billion Moreton Bay Rail Link, which may generate opportunities for apprenticeships in Queensland, will see the development of a new heavy rail passenger line between Petrie and Kippa-Ring, as well as six new stations along the new route.

Moreton Bay Regional Council mayor Allan Sutherland said the project is a major boon for the local area, with it supporting one of Australia’s fastest growing urban areas.

“This is crucial infrastructure that will serve the region’s booming population for decades to come and drive additional investment,” Mr Sutherland remarked.

The two shortlisted companies will work independently to finalise specific elements of the project, with their tenders due by May.
