The Queensland government has released the draft Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) for two of the five sections of the Inland Rail project in Queensland.
The first EIS relates to the section between the NSW/Queensland border and Gowrie (B2G) and the second EIS relates to the section from Calvert to Kagaru (C2K). You can access a copy of the draft EIS here (for B2G) and here (for C2K).
While public consultation on the two EIS is in progress, landholders have previously expressed concerns about a number of impact issues associated with the project, including:
In January 2021, the Queensland Farmers' Federation asked the Office of the Coordinator-General to extend the exhibition period to account for the harvest. That request was declined.
Residents and stakeholders in Queensland have until next Monday, March 8, to submit their feedback on the EIS for the B2G section, and until April 19 for the C2K section.
Get your submission in and make sure your voice counts.
