Moreton Bay Rail Link
Moreton Bay Rail Link will deliver a 12.6 km dual-track passenger rail line between Petrie and Kippa-Ring, including 6 new rail stations at Kallangur, Murrumba Downs, Mango Hill, Kinsellas Road, Rothwell and Kippa-Ring.
The $988 million project is jointly funded by the Australian Government ($583 million), Queensland Government ($300 million) and Moreton Bay Regional Council ($105 million).
The Lawnton to Petrie Upgrade project will be delivered with the Moreton Bay Rail Link as the Moreton Bay Rail project. The upgrade of the track and a new 1.5km quad track bridge between Lawnton and Petrie is required to integrate the new Moreton Bay Rail service. The Queensland Government funded the $168 million Lawnton to Petrie project.

The Moreton Bay Rail will:
- provide a more reliable, economical, and faster alternative to driving to Brisbane’s Central Business District during peak periods
- help reduce congestion on the road network, including the Bruce Highway, and free up capacity for journeys that can’t be made using public transport
- provide sustainable and active transport options that reduce carbon emissions — every full train on the new line will take about 600 cars off the road
- provide better access to major employment centres both within and outside the Moreton Bay region
- help attract investment to the area and create business opportunities
- act as a catalyst for growth along the alignment, with stations becoming hubs of new development in the region.
