A western Queensland MP says he hopes efforts to rebuild a rail bridge in the central west are not a "bandaid" solution.
Queensland Rail (QR) says it will award a contract to fix the Darr River Bridge between Longreach and Winton within the week.
Cattle producers wanting to use trains to move their stock are worried it could be July before the rail line reopens.
The LNP's Member for Gregory, Vaughan Johnson, says he is worried the job will not be done properly.
"I hope it is not a bandaid job because you can see where there's been bandaid jobs done there before," he said.
"It needs a total reconstruction so that we don't have this problem in the future and the other thing while they are on the job, I hope they do all the ballast on the line between Longreach and Winton because the line is in a deplorable state."
A statement from QR says construction will begin in the coming month.
