The Carmichael Rail Network is approximately 200km long and will connect the Carmichael mine with the existing rail network. The Carmichael Mine is located in the North Galilee Basin more than 300km from the Queensland coastline and approximately 160kms north-west of Clermont in regional Queensland. Abbot Point Port is located approximately 25km north of Bowen.
The Carmichael Rail Network is now under construction delivering jobs and opportunities to Regional Queenslanders.
Three temporary rail camps are being built to provide beds for 1,200 workers, who will build the rail line to transport coal from the mine to Abbot Point Port near Bowen.
The narrow gauge rail line is approximately 200km long and will connect to the port using existing rail infrastructure.
By connecting to the existing network we can fast-track our project delivery, reduce capital expenditure and deliver coal more quickly to countries in Asia with growing energy demand.
