OPPONENTS of the planned Inland Rail route across the agriculturally important Condamine River floodplain are creating a Facebook page providing a template for all community members to respond to the draft environmental impact statement.
Millmerran Rail Group chair Wes Judd said community members needed to be informed and to make a submission if they had an issue or questions about the draft EIS.
Construction of the the $1.4 billion, 216km Border to Gowrie section of the project is expected begin next year, to be completed in 2026.
Landholders maintain the proposed construction of the track on the Condamine River floodplain will exacerbate flooding.
A lot of lives and livelihoods depend on getting this Inland Rail route right.- Wes Judd, Millmerran Rail Group
"A lot of lives and livelihoods depend on getting this Inland Rail route right," Mr Judd said.
A community forum to consider the Inland Rail draft EIS scheduled for Monday night in Millmerran was postponed following the reintroduction of Covid restrictions in parts of Queensland.
Comments on the draft environmental impact statement developed by the Australian Rail Track Corporation close on April 19.
