Accelerated opportunities for local businesses
We recently launched a new procurement and packaging plan to industry that aims to accelerate opportunities for regional businesses to participate in upcoming construction package tenders. We caught up with the Goondiwindi Chamber of Commerce committee to brief them on what this means for local businesses.
Supporting local jobs, communities and regional economies is embedded in our procurement process.
Late last month, we met with Goondiwindi Chamber of Commerce committee members to brief them on Inland Rail and upcoming opportunities for local businesses in the region.
Current project opportunities requiring services, materials and equipment include:
|Clearing and grubbing||Fences and gates||Containers|
|Earthworks||ICT equipment||Equipment (i.e. compressors, floodlights, generators etc.)|
|Electrical||Noise walls||Plant (i.e. compactors, earthmovers, excavators, graders, rollers, scrapers)|
|Environment and rehabilitation||Personal protective equipment||Temporary fencing and hoarding|
|Plumbing and drainage||Quarry materials (i.e. ballast, capping)||Tracklaying and surfacing machinery|
|Road construction, maintenance||Reinforced concrete products
(i.e. culverts, decks, girders, panels, pipes, pits)
|Survey||Site offices, equipment, furniture||Welding machines|
|Track removal and installation|
We engage a number of major contractors who, in turn, use smaller regional suppliers and businesses to source and deliver a variety of materials, services and works to support Inland Rail construction.

Inland Rail upskilling workshops a success
We’re committed to playing our part in upskilling regional communities and ensuring people are given the opportunity to help build Inland Rail. Late last year, the Inland Rail Skills Academy hosted eight business capability workshops between Beaudesert and Goondiwindi to help local businesses get ‘construction ready’.
