Powering Queensland Jobs: Rail Manufacturing

As we recover from the global pandemic, it is more important than ever to lock in the next phase of rail manufacturing for regional Queenslanders.

We have made history by committing $600 million to build the trains for Cross River Rail in Maryborough, as part of our economic recovery plan. 

This commitment builds on the proud 150-year history of Maryborough and will support 690 jobs, with the first 20 trains for Cross River Rail, and an option for 45 more which we have also guaranteed will be built in Maryborough.
