Adani and QR National will work together on a proposal for an east-west rail line out of the coal-rich Galilee Basin in central Queensland.
Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney says the co-operative approach was what the government had hoped for when it declared two rail corridors - one running east-west and another north-south - for the region.
"Adani and QR National's decision to jointly evaluate an integrated rail project and accelerate work into the feasibility stage is good news for the companies and the state," he said.
The declaration of two corridors ended a stalemate between eight proponents eyeing development in the area, which is set to stage the next resources boom.
Mr Seeney says an integrated approach will provide an efficient and effective supply chain to an untapped coal resource of national significance.
