Premier Anna Bligh says Queensland's coordinator-general has given conditional approval to a coal rail project in the state's central region.
Ms Bligh has told Parliament, the coordinator-general's report shows the Moura link Aldoga rail project in Gladstone can proceed subject to conditions.
She also says an environmental assessment has begun of the $1.25 billion proposed development at Abbot Point in north Queensland.
Ms Bligh says the two projects are needed to keep up with the growing coal industry.
"It is precisely this level of demand that means that this industry will continue to create thousands of jobs that those who are working in the industry have job security regardless of the ownership structure," she said.
