Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
Small business owners in south-west Queensland have been reassured by Queensland Rail that they will not lose their cold freight service.
The Member for Warrego, Howard Hobbs, raised the issue in the final sitting of State Parliament for the year.
He says the cold freight wagons that carry frozen food to Cunnamulla, Mitchell, Charleville and Quilpie do not meet food safety standards and need upgrading.
Cunnamulla supermarket owner Eddie Mills says he would not be the only small business owner affected.
"Counting the butcher shop, which gets meat on the train as well, there would probably be at least another five or six outlets," he said.
He says changing to road transport would double freight costs and customers would pay dearly.
Queensland Rail says it has no intention of stopping the service and is in the process of upgrading and re-registering its wagons.
