Australian Government names Inland Rail as a priority project

21 July, 2020

We welcome the Australian Government's announcement to streamline environmental approval processes as we work to create the right enabling environment to help us continue to deliver Inland Rail. The streamlining measures target a further 25 per cent reduction in Commonwealth assessments and approval times by the end of the year, without compromising regulatory requirements and community consultation processes.

With intergovernmental agreements signed with Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland state governments, Inland Rail has strong support to get on with delivering a fast freight backbone that will transform how we move goods around Australia.

We are committed to ensuring our design meets the highest environmental, safety and community standards in line with state and Commonwealth approval processes. Robust community consultation, environmental and hydrology processes will continue as we strive to make our work visible and provide you with the best possible information about how Inland Rail will be built.
