"But we are building more than a rail line,”

“We are building a line that will open the Galilee Basin, linking that massive coal reserve to markets around the world, generating power, and — importantly — generating many thousands of direct and indirect jobs in regional Queensland.”

“In Adani’s case, it will link its Carmichael coal mine to our bulk loading facility at the port of Abbot Point from where it will be shipped to Adani’s power stations in India.”

“While some may be looking for ways to leave regional Queensland, we are looking to the future. We are looking to ensure regional Queensland remains a great place to live, work and to raise a family.”


A $74 million contract has also been awarded to Arrium Steel for the railway tracks and an $82 million contract has been awarded to Austrak for sleepers.

Specifics about the contract are light at the moment, but this blog post will be updated as facts emerge.

The contract to construct and operate Adani’s Carmichael mine has also been awarded, click here for the details.

This is also a timely reminder that Adani has said it will be evaluating the digital presence of a company before awarding any tenders. To have a chat about updating your website, click here.
