The Queensland Train Manufacturing Program will build 65 new six-car passenger trains at a purpose-built manufacturing facility at Torbanlea, in the Maryborough region.

Torbanlea Train Manufacturing Facility

Geotechnical Services is collaborating with our valued client on the Torbanlea Train Manufacturing Facility, a pivotal component of the $7.1 billion Queensland Train Manufacturing Program (QTMP). Positioned 25 kilometres north of Maryborough, the site stretches from the termination of Ritchie Road to the westward extent of the Bruce Highway. Our dedicated team based in Hervey Bay is spearheading material testing and compaction control services for this significant endeavour.

This state-of-the-art facility is poised to play a crucial role in facilitating the production of 65 six-car passenger trains destined for the Queensland rail network. The comprehensive project scope encompasses the construction of workshops, sheds, and requisite train tracks within the facility premises. Additionally, the facility will house offices and ample car parking spaces for both workers and visitors. Ensuring seamless access, infrastructure will be developed connecting the site to the Bruce Highway and via a secondary access road from Ritchie Road.

Construction commenced in late 2023, with a projected completion date in late 2025. Our team looks forward to working with all stakeholders to ensure the successful completion of this vital transport infrastructure project. By leveraging our expertise and dedication, we are proud to contribute Queensland’s rail network and bolstering the state’s transportation capabilities for the Brisbane 2032 Summer Olympics and for many years to come.
