Stuart Intermodal Facility Project
Aurizon has commenced construction on the new Stuart Intermodal Facility Project, which once complete will support the growth of Aurizon’s intermodal business and become a vital freight hub in North Queensland.
Wiggins Island Rail Project
The Wiggins Island Rail Project (WIRP) involved the staged development of new rail lines and upgrading of existing lines to service the Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal (WICET) at the Port of Gladstone. WIRP created a vital link between the coal terminal and mines in the southern Bowen and Surat Basins.
Hexham Train Support Facility
The Hexham Train Support Facility (TSF) services Aurizon's growing Hunter Valley coal freight business and alleviates capacity pressures in the coal supply chain.
Hay Point (Goonyella) Rail Expansion Project
Completed in mid-2013, the Hay Point Rail Expansion Project now services 30 coal mines in the northern Bowen Basin as the final leg of the 924km Goonyella Rail System. Coal is railed to the Port of Hay Point (40km south of Mackay) where it is exported through the Hay Point Coal Terminal (HPCT), operated by the BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) and the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal (DBCT), operated by DBCT Management.
Bauhinia Electrification (Rolleston Electrification)
The Bauhinia rail line is a 107 kilometre rail spur from Rangal south to the Rolleston Mine on the Blackwater System in Central Queensland.
Track Duplication South of Hay Point
Construction of the 6.2km track duplication south of Hay Point commenced late 2011 and was commissioned in July 2013 on time, under budget and with zero Lost Time injuries (LTIs).
Blackwater Power Systems Strengthening Project
In September 2012, Aurizon commissioned the $195 million Blackwater Power System Strengthening Project, which nearly doubled the electric capacity on the Blackwater rail system that connects mines west of Rockhampton to coal loading ports at Gladstone.
Goonyella to Abbot Point Expansion Project
The 924km Goonyella Rail System in Central Queensland services 30 coal mines in the northern Bowen Basin. Coal is railed to the Port of Hay Point, south of Mackay, where it is exported through the Hay Point Coal Terminal (HPCT), operated by the BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA), and the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal (DBCT), operated by DBCT Management.
