NEW video is showing a planned $235 million rail transfer hub in detail not seen before.
InterlinkSQ is a Freight Terminals master-planned logistics estate being constructed 13km west of Toowoomba in Charlton.
The rail hub will have km of frontage on the existing West Moreton railway line, connecting to the Port of Brisbane and the planned Melbourne to Brisbane Inland Rail project.
The project is being called the "inland port of Australia" and InterLinkSQ chief executive officer Michelle Reynolds said the new video showed it would be just that.
The project shows rows of freight containers, cranes and silos, sprawled over a vast area.
Conveys of trucks are seen navigating a large road area and trains being loaded with produce.
Ms Reynolds said the project development team hoped the video would show the community what had been "in their heads".
"We've designed, lived and breathed the project for years," she said.
"Now we have the ability to bring it out and show other people what is about to start construction.
"It's a massive project."
Ms Reynolds added there was a perception moving freight from trucks to trains was difficult, but said with the right technology it could be done easily.
"That's why we've spent money designing a project that can get rail and road working together."
