Great Barrier Reef at risk if Coal Train Approved

The North Galilee Basin Rail project is not in the best economic or environmental interests of Queensland and should not be approved according to The Australia Institute’s submission to the Queensland Government today.

It is inexcusable that a cost-benefit analysis has not been demanded by the Newman government before looking to approve the 300 kilometre rail line which will link undeveloped mines in Central Queensland to the controversial Abbot Point coal terminal adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef.
