About the project

The Queensland Train Manufacturing Program (QTMP) will build 65 new 6-car passenger trains to support Queensland's population and economic growth, including generating hundreds of manufacturing and rail jobs for Queenslanders.

The program includes the construction of a purpose-built manufacturing facility in Torbanlea, outside of Maryborough, as well as a rail facility for train maintenance and stabling in Ormeau on the Gold Coast.

In June 2023, the Queensland Government awarded Downer the Design Build Maintain contract to deliver the QTMP. Since this time, Downer has commenced detailed design and onsite mobilisation activities.

Site construction works are continuing at both Torbanlea and Ormeau in 2024.

Concept design feedback

Consultation on the Torbanlea train manufacturing facility and Ormeau rail facility concept designs was undertaken between 4 December 2023 and 2 March 2024.

This feedback is now being reviewed and considered as part of the design development process. Information about key feedback themes will be provided in mid 2024, with information about the final design to be provided by the late 2024.
