The Logan and Gold Coast Faster Rail project is making progress with the announcement of three major works packages moving onto the next phase of procurement. 

Through the Registration of Interest process, the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) received strong interest from industry and has multiple parties registered for each package.

TMR will soon release Requests for Proposals to accepted registrants for the Logan and Gold Coast Faster Rail Project Level Crossing Removal Package and Rail Package.

The Level Crossing Removal package will remove existing level crossings at Beenleigh Road at Kuraby station and Station Road at Bethania station and improve safety for these local communities. These works will be delivered through a collaborative design and construct contract.

The Rail package will deliver the major rail works between Kuraby and Beenleigh including duplicating the tracks from two to four, station upgrades, the remaining level crossing removals, local road works and active transport connections. 

The design and construction of this complex brownfield project will be delivered through an alliance contract.

TMR is also inviting Expressions of Interest from registrants for the Loganlea Station Relocation Project. This project will relocate and upgrade Loganlea train station and park ‘n’ ride to better connect customers with nearby health, education and community services – particularly Logan Hospital. 

The Logan and Gold Coast Faster Rail and Loganlea Station Relocation projects are jointly funded by the Federal and Queensland Governments. The procurement and delivery timeframes for the project remain subject to further approvals.

Queensland Minister for Transport and Main Roads, Mark Bailey, said that kickstarting the procurement process is an exciting milestone for industry and for customers and communities who will benefit from this major investment in rail.

“The Logan and Gold Coast Faster Rail and Loganlea Station Relocation projects remain a high priority for the Queensland Government to improve rail services between some of South East Queensland’s fastest growing cities and deliver integrated transport outcomes for local communities,” Mr Bailey said. 

“Currently, all services on the Gold Coast and Beenleigh lines are constrained by single tracks in each direction between Kuraby and Beenleigh.

“Once finalised, these projects will connect growing communities with more frequent and reliable train services between Brisbane, Logan and the Gold Coast.

“The projects will improve accessibility at stations, provide safer connections across the rail corridor for the community, and provide an improved active transport corridor and facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.”
