TYPE: Greenfield

The proposed Maldon to Dombarton Railway is a 35 kilometre single track dedicated rail freight line between the Main South Line at Maldon (in the Southern Highlands) and Dombarton (near Port Kembla), in the Illawarra region of NSW.

Construction on the line started in 1983 but was halted due to an economic downturn and the forecast growth in coal traffic not eventuating. By this time, around 25km of earthworks (such as major cuttings and embankments) had been completed and ballast had been installed. A bridge and tunnel portals were also partially built.

In 2013, Transport for NSW called for Registrations of Interest to construct, operate and maintain the railway but no respondent was considered capable of this on a commercially sustainable basis, without NSW Government funding.
