Need to solve inland rail's 'missing link' says Port of Brisbane
Farmers in NSW are blocking attempts by the Australian Rail Track Corporation to fast-track the $10 billion inland rail line.
The project involves building new tracks, and upgrading current ones, so freight can run on a dedicated rail line between Melbourne and Brisbane.
