Moreton Bay Rail

In 2014 GLH was contracted by Thiess and then Martinus Rail and then CPB Rail to construct the Redcliffe Peninsula Line (Moreton Bay Rail).

The Redcliffe Peninsula Line is a 12.6 km dual-track passenger rail line between Petrie and Kippa-Ring, including 6 rail stations at Kallangur, Murrumba Downs, Mango Hill, Mango Hill East, Rothwell and Kippa-Ring.

The new rail line is part of a $1.2 billion program of public transport improvements for the Moreton Bay Region, funded by the Australian Government, Queensland Government and Moreton Bay Regional Council, which includes the rail line, Petrie to Lawnton track duplication.

GLH was tasked with building the track, had approximately 6-7 machines, loaders and excavators and Rail Worker Qualified Operators working on the project and performed many tasks including drilling mast holes, laying sleepers, moving ballast, placing rail and feeding the flash butt welder.
