About the project

The Beerburrum to Nambour Rail Upgrade (B2N) project covers about 40km of the North Coast Line and will provide additional track capacity and reliability, creating travel time savings and increased passenger and freight services to the growing Sunshine Coast region.

The full scope of the business case for B2N includes duplication of the North Coast Line between Beerburrum and Landsborough stations (around 20km in length) as well as station upgrades, new park 'n' ride facilities and new rail passing loops between Landsborough and Nambour.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will deliver the project in stages, allowing construction of Stage 1 to start to provide community benefits while investigating funding options for future stages.

A John Holland Queensland and Seymour Whyte Joint Venture with SMEC Australia and WSP Australia as Joint Venture designers have been appointed to undertake enabling works and finalise the design for the Stage 1 rail duplication and associated road works. The timing for delivery and staging of construction works will be finalised following the completion of detailed design.
