The company will build a 200km link to the existing Aurizon rail network, to ship coal from the Carmichael mine to the Abbot Point coal terminal near Bowen.

According to Adani, this is one of $450 million worth of contracts awarded for the project so far, with the majority going to companies operating out of regional Queensland areas. 

“We now have our mining services contractor and one of our earthworks contractors for the rail project in placed based in Rockhampton,” said Lucas Dow, Chief Executive for Adani Mining.

“Martinus Rail will be our rail laying construction contractor also based in Rockhampton, initial rail camp provision will be based in Collinsville, earthworks and civil works is coming from Townsville, fuel supply is from Townsville, telecommunications is from Mackay, and many other regional businesses across regional Queensland also have a piece of the pie.”

Martinus will deliver the work out of Rockhampton, where Adani has also opened a business centre. The company claim that they are keen to ensure regional communities see the benefits of the contract, with the centre providing a local base for major procurement and recruitment programs for the project during construction and operations.

“We are proud Australian-founded and operated company and we’ve always been highly focused on ensuring the work we deliver is resourced through regional areas that need it most, and are also often highly skilled to deliver it,” said Managing Director Treaven Martinus.

“Adani’s commitments to regional jobs for Queensland is a good fit for our business, and we’re pleased to partner with a company like Adani … while also uploading the highest standards of project delivery across environmental and safety conditions.”
