Rail advocates call on Qld govt to commit to upgrade

SUNSHINE Coast RAIL Back on Track spokesman Jeff Addison says the incoming Aura development will heap further pressure on the Coast's already struggling road network.

Mr Addison called on the State Government to commit to the duplication of the North Coast rail line as well as a rail spur to Caloundra, along the CAMCOS rail corridor to service the spine of the Coast.

He said without such commitments, the effects of the Aura development would see greater pressure placed on the Bruce Hwy, potentially choking the major arterial road from the Coast to Brisbane.

"Today, RAIL Back on Track calls upon the state government and Deputy Premier Jacki Trad, the Transport and Infrastructure Minister, to spell out a clear and unequivocal timetable for duplication of the Sunshine Coast Railway line to Landsborough in order for Aura residents to access trains to Brisbane from the Beerwah and Landsborough stations," Mr Addison said.
