QR National will re-open the flood-damaged Rolleston coal line this evening.
The 106km branch line off the Blackwater rail system in Central Queensland has been closed since 24 December 2010 due to significant damage caused by major flooding of the Comet River.
The line services Xstrata's Rolleston coal mine.
QR National has worked closely with Xstrata to expedite recovery and reconstruction work required for the line. The cost of repair work has been funded by Xstrata.
The Rolleston line is the final major recovery work to QR National’s coal network following the floods that inundated extensive parts of the network in central Queensland in December and January.
