Training gets Toomelah ‘Inland Rail-ready’
We’re partnering with Indigenous communities right along the alignment to facilitate opportunities to get ‘Inland Rail-ready’. Earlier this month, we joined with Toomelah Local Aboriginal Land Council and LDO Group to run heavy machinery training for locals ahead of construction.
The heavy machinery training, run over five days, gave nine Toomelah community members the opportunity to learn new skills on-site by using the machinery to beautify the community and repair local roads.
“We’re committed to creating opportunities for the development of skilled Indigenous workers through the construction and operation of Inland Rail,” North Star to Gowrie Project Director, Rob McNamara said.
“To support this goal, we’re working closely with our Indigenous community networks to create meaningful opportunities and encourage participation.
“The training in Toomelah is a fantastic example of how we’re working with local communities to support skills development ahead of the tendering and construction phases of Inland Rail.”
