Applications open for Inland Rail Community Consultation Committees in New South Wales

Friday, 4 May 2018

Local residents will have the opportunity to shape the Melbourne to Brisbane Inland Rail with nominations now open for Community Consultative Committees in New South Wales.

The committees will cover the Narromine to Narrabri and North Star to NSW and Queensland Border projects, two greenfield sections of the 1,700km project which pass through NSW.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Michael McCormack said the establishment of the committees by the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) is another important step for the nationally-significant project.

“The Federal Government is committed to delivering Inland Rail. Strong working relationships between ARTC, local community, stakeholder groups and Councils are critical to the success of this project,” Mr McCormack said.

“With Inland Rail set to create thousands of jobs and investment opportunities throughout regional New South Wales it is important for the community to be involved and shape the project in their region.”

Assistant Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment and Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said the committees will be a channel for direct feedback and information sharing between landholders, local businesses and residents and the ARTC.

“The four committees, each with an independent chair, will give members the opportunity to provide valuable input that will be crucial to the design of Inland Rail,” Mr Coulton said.

“Regular and ongoing input is both vital and welcome as ARTC moves through the environmental assessments process involving extensive studies and engineering work. The committees will focus on local issues, ensuring we deliver a refined solution that supports local farmers and businesses.”

Interested community members are encouraged to nominate with more information about the committees available at inlandrail.com.au.
