The Cannon Hill monitoring station is situated next to the metropolitan rail line used to transport coal to the Port of Brisbane. The station measures particle levels to assess the progress of ongoing measures to reduce coal dust emissions from rail wagons. Monitoring commenced in February 2014. The Queensland Resources Council, on behalf of the South West System coal producers, Aurizon, Queensland Rail and Queensland Bulk Handling, has funded this monitoring station.
