Sourcing critical railway upgrade funding needs cool heads and smart solutions
Queensland Rail's (QR) $65 million upgrade of the West Moreton rail system has reached the Toowoomba district on the state's Darling Downs.
QR spokesman Tim Ripper says it is changing the old timber and steel sleepers to concrete to accommodate coal trains travelling to mines at Jondaryan.
He says extra mining activity has necessitated the upgrade.
"As the changes increase with the movement of coal to the Port of Brisbane down the older track structure struggles a little bit, certainly the new concrete structures provide us with far more reliable product," he said.
