Queensland's North Coast rail line has reopened, after being cut in several places by tropical Cyclone Debbie.
The line is the main freight and passenger connection between Nambour and Cairns, making it a vital connection both for moving people and local economies.
Queensland Transport Minister Jackie Trad said the floodwaters in Rockhampton had receded over the last few days, allowing crews to reconnect the final sections of track.
"Crews repaired more than 116 washouts on the line, which involved completely rebuilding the foundations and relaying the track in the affected areas.
"The signalling and infrastructure at 67 level crossings had to be tested, and six level crossings required a total re-build."
Ms Trad has urged motorists to take extra care at level crossings, with trains again running on the line after a fortnight of no activity.
