The Proponent for the Project is Queensland Rail (QR). The proposal is to expand
the existing rail yard located near the town of Sarina in Central Queensland to
incorporate two new bypass tracks with provision for a third, two provisioning tracks,
a provisioning facility, a wagon maintenance facility, and modifications to the
existing yard and maintenance tracks.
The nominal capacity of the rail yard will increase from 92 million tonnes per annum
(Mtpa) to approximately 130 Mtpa to complement the increased capacity of
Dalrymple Bay/ Hay Point coal terminals.
