Queensland Rail wishes to advise of an upcoming tender opportunity for project QRP-24-13 Toowoomba Range Cutting Stabilisation.
This tender is planned to be released to the market via QTenders in March 2024.
Landslides and rockfalls commonly occur within the Toowoomba Range and evidence of historical land movements has been observed in the vicinity of the site, Ch. 152.38 – 152.46 KM and Ch. 153.3 – 153.52 KM.
Based on the observer movements over time, the Toowoomba Range Cutting Stabilisation C63 and C71 project was created by Queensland Rail to take a proactive approach to remediate the high-risk susceptible to slope instability.
