Inland Rail is delivering real opportunities for regional communities. Best Western Goondiwindi owner, Paul Hodda said the benefits of a project this size are broad. 

“Inland Rail is a major project for our town, the community and the wider region,” Mr Hodda said.

“We’ve been involved with the project for several years and are fortunate to have Inland Rail staff stay with us when they travel to Goondiwindi.”

Building in regional communities means supporting regional economies. Mr Hodda’s advice to local businesses wanting to get on board with Inland Rail is to be prepared and understand the competencies and requirements.  

“Local businesses will have the chance to supply goods and services, so the best advice I can give is to be ready,” he said. 

“Understand the requirements and ensure you have all the right certifications in place to comply with those requirements.”
