October 2020 project update for Stockinbingal to Parkes

Inland Rail has appointed engineering consultancy WSP Australia to deliver the reference and detailed design and accompanying approvals documentation for the Stockinbingal to Parkes project.

The environmental assessment for the Stockinbingal to Parkes project is via four Review of Environmental Factors (REFs).  A REF describes the existing environment, identifies environmental impacts of the proposed works and defines appropriate mitigation measures to manage those impacts.

Later this year, we will begin community consultation to provide a project update, seek feedback on the proposed design and outline opportunities for business and industry to get involved in the project.

Procurement of construction contractors will follow completion of reference design and planning approvals. We expect to tender for first packages of work for the Stockinbingal to Parkes project in late 2021.
