Acting Premier Andrew Fraser says a new rail line linking central Queensland mines to the Abbot Point terminal near Bowen, north of Mackay, will provide a significant boost to the state's economy.
The 69-kilometre Northern Missing Link, north of Collinsville, south-west of Bowen, will officially be opened today.
Mr Fraser says it is an important project.
"This will make a huge difference to the economic capacity and the exporting capacity of not only Queensland but also Australia," he said.
"It's an investment in infrastructure that's been funded by QR National, it's been completed and the first trains will be rolling on it today.
"This connects the two rail systems in central Queensland to enable bigger exports, to enable more efficient exports."
