Federal Government names Inland Rail as a priority project

Inland Rail is one of 15 major infrastructure projects to be prioritised for approval under a bilateral arrangement between the Federal Government, State and Territory governments.

Track works.

Joint working groups have been tasked with assessing ways to accelerate approvals for these projects.

We welcome the Federal Government’s announcement as we work to create the right enabling environment to help us continue to deliver Inland Rail.

With Intergovernmental agreements signed with Victoria, NSW 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 and giving the public access to the best possible information about how Inland Rail will be built.
