TMR is planning to connect growing communities with more frequent and reliable train services between Brisbane, Logan and the Gold Coast.
To support growing population and rail patronage demand, TMR needs to double the number of Beenleigh and Gold Coast train services over the next 20 years. The rail line between Kuraby and Beenleigh is a key capacity bottleneck on the rail corridor.The Queensland Government, together with the Australian Government, is planning to increase the number of tracks between Kuraby and Beenleigh from two to four, with modernised rail systems, stations upgrades and level crossing removals. Currently, trains between Kuraby and Beenleigh share a single track in each direction, limiting the number of peak services that can run. Additional tracks will require a wider corridor and track straightening in some areas.
