Townsville Eastern Access Rail Corridor

Building Queensland completed the detailed business case for the Townsville Eastern Access Rail Corridor (TEARC) in late 2017.

Developed in partnership with the Department of Transport and Main Roads, the detailed business case investigated options for a new freight rail link with greater capacity connecting the Mount Isa line and North Coast line, through the Townsville State Development Area to the Port of Townsville. The analysis considered the planned expansion of the Port of Townsville, including associated investment and land use planning activities.

A key focus of the analysis was estimating future demand and freight capacity along the whole supply chain. The preservation and development of the rail corridor and associated investment in other parts of the supply chain were referred to the Queensland Government for further consideration.
