Queensland Rail Business Cases


As a result of the Queensland rail project, a comprehensive set of investment assessments was created to persuade the QLD Government to fund six QR business cases in the FY 2024 investment plan. In the coming decade, this funding will ensure QR’s asset reliability and manage obsolescence. Using the Business Case Plan Framework (BCDF) of the Department of State, Infrastructure, Local Government, and Planning, the business cases were structured according to Phase 1 and Phase 2 guidelines.

TBH’s Role

TBH acted as the program manager, offering essential expertise in the Business Case Development Framework (BCDF) to make certain the cases were robust and fit for purpose. A business case delivery team was assembled by TBH to work in close collaboration with the Business Case Leads from each of the six groups involved. This delivery team reported to the Senior Responsible Owners (SROs), who were accountable for the business cases themselves.

The TBH Difference

TBH successfully engaged stakeholders from both the north and south Queensland Rail teams, delivering equal outcomes for both parties. The business cases that were developed not only met but exceeded expectations by being robust and firmly backed by company policy, regulations, and engineering reports. Whereas previously, the focus was on providing TMR with primarily cost-based business cases, TBH elevated the process by supplementing the cases with robust evidence. This evidence was collected through thorough research, stakeholder meetings, workshops, and aligning with asset condition policies.
