Yeppoon line upgrade?
Graham4405

Reopening the line to Fields Siding to serve the JBS Meatworks. There has also been rail, sleeper and ballast replacement along much of the line, so it will probably be able to handle 2800s when the work is finished - at the moment the line is only available to 15.75-tonne axle loads.

I missed this one tucked away in the Main Roads highlights...

$50 million to duplicate the North Coast Line between Beerburrum and Nambour
to address rail infrastructure and capacity constraints. Project timing, potential
staging and funding arrangements are subject to negotiations with the Australian
Government.

The name "Field's Siding Line", just doesn't roll off the tongue as sweetly.
