Works and planning
Works in the Illabo to Stockinbingal project area will include constructing 39km of new rail track in the Junee and Cootamundra regions of New South Wales.
Some of the work completed so far includes:
- meeting and working with landowners, stakeholders and community members to get a clear understanding of local needs and opportunities
- hosting project information sessions for the local community and stakeholders
- collaborating with councils to better understand local issues such as flooding, roads and traffic movements
- completing preliminary field studies including flood, hydrology, ecology and geotechnical studies
- carrying out a Multi Criteria Analysis (MCA) to narrow down the study area from a two- kilometre-wide zone to a 200-400-metre-wide study area, called the Focused Area of Investigation (FAI)
- undertaking a value engineering exercise which seeks to improve value for money without unacceptably compromising service levels, environmental impacts, stakeholder or other impacts.
These activities are assisting us finalise the rail corridor design as we complete the reference design stage of this project.
