Inland Rail is delivering real opportunities for regional communities.

During construction, Inland Rail will be bustling with jobs and economic activity. Once operational, it will continue to reap benefits through ongoing employment and skills training, and new investment and business development opportunities.

From supporting local employment and procurement opportunities to offering scholarships and community funding, we believe in giving back to the regions that support Inland Rail.
