Electricians were working to fix the problem, a Queensland Rail spokesman said.
The track fault is also causing delays on the roads.
The QR spokesman said the fault had caused the Beams Rd crossing to "operate in safe mode".
According to Queensland Traffic, all lanes were blocked at the rail crossing at Beams Rd, Fitzgibbon, at about 7.25am due to the fault.
Delays were expected and motorists were being urged to use alternative routes.
