Project Iron Boomerang

Michael McLaren

Michael is joined by Shane Condon, Managing Director and Founder of Project Iron Boomerang, about their proposal, which originated in 2006, to build a multi-user rail corridor spanning northern Australia and to facilitate placement of five steel-making plants at each end, owned and operated by steel mill companies.

Poised to be one of the biggest construction challenges in the nation’s history, Project Iron Boomerang will link the Pilbara iron ore mines in Western Australia with the Bowen Basin coal mines in north Queensland via a 3,300km rail line.

The infrastructure, services and resource linkages will support and fuel two Steel Precincts, one on each coast, which will manufacture slab steel for export, linking Australia’s two great ore bodies for steelmaking, iron ore from the west coast and metallurgical coal from the east coast.
