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.
