Queensland Cement and Lime Company Inc (QCL) acquired land that encompassed both part of the escarpment and part of the riverside flats in 1930s. In 1969, the Company built a 3.5 km overhead conveyor, supported by concrete pillars, for transferring the coral to Darra. From 1988, after company mergers, the company was known as Queensland Cement Limited, having plants in other parts of Queensland as well. Dredging licences in Moreton Bay were not renewed in 1995. The closure of the Darra plant followed in 1998.
