Logan City properties facing resumption for 2032 Olympics

Property resumptions are expected as the result of a billion-dollar plan to boost train services between the Gold Coast and Logan City in readiness for the 2032 Olympic Games. 

However, it still isn’t known how many properties will be resumed when the existing rail corridor is widened from two tracks to four.

This week the Queensland and Federal Governments  announced $356.2 million would be spent duplicating the train line between Kuraby and the Gold Coast.

According to the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads the track upgrade would allow faster and more frequent trains on the line , uncorking a bottleneck between Kuraby and Beenleigh, where it’s currently a single track in each direction.

Proposed changes for rail corridor

The single track currently limits the number of peak services with all-stop Beenleigh trains forced to wait on the side for about four minutes to allow Gold Coast express trains to pass.
