Double-decker, 3km-long freight trains for Lockyer Valley
LOCKYER Valley Regional Council is looking for opportunities in relation to the proposed new Brisbane to Melbourne Inland Rail line.
The proposal will see a new standard gauge rail line traverse the entire length of the Lockyer Valley operating 24 hours day.
Lockyer Valley Mayor Steve Jones said if it got the go-ahead, there may be a big impact on local residents.
"From the briefing we have been given, the rail line will cater for massive three-kilometre-long freight trains hauling double decker containers through the Lockyer Valley," he said.
"As a council, we are currently examining all options for the rail line including adequate compensation being made to affected residents."
