Consultation

We are committed to working with property owners and stakeholders in communities along the project alignment to receive their feedback as we progress our planning.

To date, our team has spoken with many property owners and community members who may experience impacts associated with Inland Rail. We’ve also undertaken a community survey and workshops as part of our Social Impact Assessment and presented the preliminary results of the environmental investigations to the community in late 2020.

We are now working with the Department of Transport and Main Roads to determine the approvals pathway for the project. This will also identify if additional investigations are required.

We have received a lot of valuable feedback to date and will continue to gather feedback as part of the project approvals processes.

Understanding impacts

We understand that some local residents have concerns about potential amenity impacts on their properties once Inland Rail is operational. Our environmental assessments have looked at a broad range of factors, including operational train noise, air quality and train volumes, to determine what the impacts may be and propose mitigation, if required.

You can find more information about how we are working with you to address impacts on the understanding impacts page.

Finalising the rail corridor

The current Inland Rail route has been fully considered, informed by 15 years of rigorous analysis, engineering design and business case development. ARTC is investigating the feasibility of the current route and can only investigate alternative routes if directed by the Australian Government.

For more details please refer to the Inland Rail Route History. Whilst we are not able to change the route, we are committed to working with local communities to find solutions to concerns where possible. For example, where noise mitigation is proposed, we will liaise with impacted landowners to determine the best approach.

View the Route History page for more information on the decisions that have informed our route.

Your consultative committee

A Community Consultative Committee (CCC) has been established for local communities in the Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and Bromelton area.

This CCC provides a forum to share project information, discuss topics of interest, and address any issues or community concerns. Importantly, it also provides an opportunity for community representatives to share their knowledge and experience on key issues with the Inland Rail team.
