Facilitation of Private Railway Infrastructure.doc
Key legislation governing railway construction and operation in Queensland was largely enacted in the era of government owned corporation (GOC) railway operations, with the state owning both land and rail infrastructure and Queensland Transport regulating Queensland Rail’s (QR’s) operations. A feature which underpins this regulatory environment is that railways were designed, built and operated for multiple users.
However, with the increasing trend towards private railway developments, there is the need to consider whether current policies and procedures are adequate. The developments of the AirTrain, Bauhinia Regional, Surat Basin Rail and Hancock railways demonstrate that a range of policy and procedural approaches exist to coordinate private railway developments in Queensland. Currently, private railways are being facilitated on a case-by-case basis, with state agencies developing policy and project-specific legislation as required.
Given the number of new projects being proposed, and in order to

Qld Govt policy position re Outstations.doc
The Queensland Government has committed to the national Council of Australian Governments (COAG) National Indigenous Reform Agreement to close the gap between the life outcomes and opportunities experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their non-Indigenous counterparts, particularly in relation to life expectancy, under five years child mortality, access to early childhood education, literacy and numeracy, year 12 attainment, and employment. The Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments have committed a combined national total of $8.142 billion to address these issues. This investment commenced in 2008-2009 and is being progressively rolled out over 10 years.
It is noted that some 75% of Indigenous people live in urban and regional Queensland and around 15% of Indigenous Queenslanders live in the Cape York and Gulf regions. Only a small number of this 15% would be on outstations at any time.
