Logan City mayor Darren Power has penned a letter to deputy prime minister Michael McCormack with a plea to change the route of the controversial Inland Rail project.

Cr Power's letter is dated June 10, the same day he slammed representatives for not answering the council's questions at the city infrastructure meeting.

It outlines noise and vibration concerns the council has over the route, and the lack of consultation over its path through the city's south-western suburbs.

Cr Power pleads for the government to review the section of track which is planned to go through Logan.

Logan will bear the brunt of the impacts without receiving any direct benefits from this infrastructure.

Darren Power's letter to the federal government

"On behalf of the 320,000 residents who call the City of Logan home I am calling on your government to urgently review the Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and Bromelton section of this project," the letter reads.

The letter doubled down on Cr Power's negative reaction towards the recent meeting with the Australian Rail Track Corporation representatives.

"Unfortunately the presentation did not quell our deep concerns for the many Logan residents living along the project route," the letter reads.

"As councillors representing the people of Logan, we share the concerns of our residents and we're calling on the Australian government to urgently reconsider this section of the Inland Rail route.

"Logan will bear the brunt of the impacts without receiving any direct benefits from this infrastructure."

Anti-Inland Rail campaigners Suz and Stan Corbett applauded the council for its stance.

The Forestdale residents live within sight of the controversial line and sit on the Inland Rail Action Group Kagaru to Acacia Ridge.

"It's good to have their support too," Mr Corbett said of the council.

"It's much better than having them approve the line.

"We appreciate what Darren and his crew are doing."

A council spokesman said it would now seek the advice of an independent consultant in regards to the project's route through Logan.

"These councillors are very new to Inland Rail," Mr Corbett said.

"The sort of expertise you are going to need would have to come from half a dozen people."
