Introducing the new Inland Rail website

You’ve probably noticed by now that we’ve made a few changes to the website. Well, a lot of changes. And the changes are as much about what’s under the hood as they are about the new paint job.

To build a brand-new website with all the information, features and functionality our stakeholders wanted, we undertook extensive user research, including workshops, interviews and testing with more than 180 community representatives in Toowoomba, Wangaratta, Dubbo and Browns Plains.

The biggest take-away from the research was that our stakeholders wanted it to be easier to find out the ‘what, why, where and how’ of Inland Rail.

Equipped with this user feedback, we decided to move the site to a  more fit-for-purpose platform, re-think the entire structure, redevelop key content and apply a fresh design throughout.

Some of the new features and improvements include:

  • a new, more engaging layout that’s designed to scale for mobile and smaller screens
  • an animated interactive map that gives a simple overview of Inland Rail
  • a searchable and filterable Information Hub, where you can find all news, media releases and documents
  • all-new project sub-sites, that make it easy to access information about works and planning, project status, community consultation, events, key contacts and more
  • an improved and filterable feed of job vacancies at Inland Rail
  • feedback, help and rate this page forms to help us continue to improve the website

Our new website might be live, but we’re always looking for feedback. Once you’ve had a chance to get familiar with the site, we would love to hear your thoughts.

The best way to do that is via the New website feedback form which you will see in the left hand margin of every website page. If you get stuck and can’t find what you’re looking for, please let us know by using the Need help form (located on the right hand margin of every page) and we will do our best to get back to you as soon as we can.

We hope you enjoy our new website!
