Narromine to Narrabri project receives Australian Government approval

This Australian Government approval follows New South Wales Government approval and is a key step in the staged approach agreed to by the Australian Government in its response to the recommendations made by Dr. Kerry Schott for getting the delivery of Inland Rail back on track.

The approval will underpin the next stage of the design for the Narromine to Narrabri project, Inland Rail’s longest section of track comprising over 300kms of new track in mid-north-western New South Wales, helping provide more certainty that Inland Rail can be built to an agreed budget and time frame.

When constructed, the Narromine to Narrabri project will link the completed Parkes to Narromine and Narrabri to North Star Phase 1 projects, providing new freight capacity and improved connectivity to ports on the east coast and westwards via Parkes to Adelaide and Perth.
