Need to solve inland rail's 'missing link' says Port of Brisbane
THE Queensland Government is calling on Prime Minister Scott Morrison to agree to a list of terms in regards to the Inland Rail project and back families in Brisbane’s south and Logan.
Member for Algester Leeanne Enoch, who has been campaigning alongside residents for over two years, has started a petition to show the Coalition Government that the State Government and the community “won’t be taken advantage of”.
“Until we have a solution as to how freight will reach the Port of Brisbane and the Salisbury to Beaudesert passenger line is complete, coal trains need to stay on the existing line, and freight containers should stay single stacked,” Ms Enoch told the Southern Star exclusively.
The Inland Rail realignment is a $10 billion project.The freight trains will run past homes, businesses, parks and schools and locals are worried about the long-term health risks of exposure to coal dust and the constant noise and vibration from the 24/7 transportation cycle.
“This is what many people in my community have been calling for, and this is what the premier has sought from the Prime Minister.
MP Leanne Enoch and Algester locals.“It is also why I have started a petition, calling for our community’s concerns to be heard.
“It makes sense to upgrade the rail corridor for freight and passenger services at the same time.”
