Beams Road (Carseldine) Rail Level Crossing Planning Study

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is seeking community input into a planning study to investigate options to improve safety and reduce congestion at the Beams Road (Carseldine) Rail Level Crossing.

To get involved, you can complete the online survey, attend the drop-in community consultation session, email or write to us.

Feedback provided will help define the problem and inform the options developed as part of the planning study. The Queensland Government has committed $400,000 to deliver this planning study. There is currently no funding to progress this project to construction. Any future upgrades would need to compete for funding against other statewide priorities.

Project timing

Community input will be accepted until 1 March 2019.
The study will be delivered mid-2019. TMR will provide an update to the community once the study is complete.

Drop-in community consultation session

Date: Thursday 21 February 2019
Time: Drop in any time between 3pm and 6pm
Location: Carseldine Government Office Precinct, A Block, Azalea room, 532 Beams Road, Carseldine

Project background

The Beams Road level crossing at Carseldine crosses three train tracks servicing the North Coast, Moreton Bay and Caboolture rail lines. There are approximately 549 scheduled train services and approximately 157 scheduled level crossing closures per day.

A 2011 traffic count survey recorded 27,115 vehicles per day at the level crossing. The level crossing is closed for almost one third of the morning and evening peak periods. Local development is expected to increase traffic at the crossing significantly.
