West Moreton timber bridge replacements

​Queensland Rail is replacing 18 rail bridges between Ipswich and Chinchilla with more durable steel structures to improve safety and reliability and reduce maintenance costs.

Moggill Construction has been contracted to undertake the bridge replacements. Works have commenced to establish temporary access tracks and laydown areas. Some bridges will require piling works to be completed prior to the replacement works.

The bridges will be replaced during a number of scheduled track closures of approximately four days between June 2018 and mid-2019.

Bridges in the following locations will be replaced during this project:

  • five bridges between Grandchester and Rosewood
  • two bridges in Laidley
  • one bridge west of Forest Hill
  • four bridges in Helidon
