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 1700km project
which pass through NSW.
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
