The challenging new track is helping locals hone their four-wheel driving skills and improve on-road safety.
Our construction partner in Victoria, McConnell Dowell donated 5000 tonnes soil, which was removed as part of track lowering works for Inland Rail at Barnawartha North.
The rail track needed to be lowered to allow sufficient clearance for double-stacked freight trains.
The donation is part of our commitment to sustainability. Throughout the life-cycle of a project, we work closely with suppliers and construction partners to create opportunities to repurpose materials and support communities along the alignment.
Jason Atteridge from Wodonga TAFE said course improvements were important to safety on our roads.
“The soil from Inland Rail is a welcome donation as we look to refurbish parts of our 4-wheel drive training course.
We look forward to continuing to offer a variety of tracks and terrains, providing drivers a hands-on learning opportunity to develop safer off-road driving skills and improving on-road safety.”
