December 2020 project update for Border to Gowrie
This month on the Border to Gowrie project, we’ve continued working with the Coordinator-General in preparation for the project’s Environmental Impact Statement public notification period, facilitated business capability workshops along the alignment and caught up with a recent Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations program recipient.
We are continuing to respond to requests for information from the Coordinator-General (CG) on the project’s draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). While timing for the project’s EIS public notification period is yet to be confirmed by the CG, it is likely to be early next year.
While we continue work on the draft EIS, we’ve been busy ensuring local and Indigenous suppliers can take advantage of opportunities presented by Australia’s largest freight rail infrastructure project.
Thank you to the communities along the alignment for your continued interest in and feedback on our project. We wish you a happy festive season and look forward to working with you in 2021.

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’.
