Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
The operator of the Adelaide-to-Darwin railway has welcomed a feasibility study into a proposed inland eastern corridor railway.
The inland railway proposal between Melbourne and Brisbane includes plans to extend the line to Darwin.
Freightlink spokesman John Fullerton says he believes the multi-million dollar feasibility study announced by Federal Transport Minister John Anderson will confirm the viability of the recently constructed Adelaide-to-Darwin line would not be affected by the competition.
"I don't think freight going through to Darwin will feature too much in their deliberations on whether that line should be built," he said.
Mr Fullerton says he welcomes the competition because it flags an increase in rail freight activity.
"We think it will have a positive impact because I think once more freight travels between Brisbane and Melbourne, more people are using rail and we think we'll be able to draw some freight off that corridor through the Adelaide-to-Darwin line," he said.
