Inland Rail isn’t just Australia’s largest freight infrastructure project. It’s a game-changer for our regions that’s generating thousands of local jobs and significantly boosting local business investment.

But Inland Rail is also about people: the local suppliers helping build our infrastructure; the local business owners keeping our supply chains moving; the local shop owners who generously support our project teams while we’re working in their communities.

These are their stories.
