This local rail link is needed...& needed now says Ipswich Council.

According to a new report...a rail line through the state's fastest growing corridor must be built, to prevent Ipswich suffering a poor quality of life.

In the most significant push to date, The Q.T reports Ipswich City Council has commissioned a study into the need for a Springfield to Ipswich Central rail link, which would include a 25 kilometre heavy rail line and 9 stations.

The report, released to Council's Economic Development Committee, says if better public transport is not provided...there will be serious, negative effects on congestion, parking, safety, public health and overall living standards in the region.
