The Narrabri to North Star section of Inland Rail will upgrade 184km of existing rail corridor and construct approximately 2km of new track near Moree, New South Wales.

This is the second section of Inland Rail to enter construction, following the commissioning of the Parkes to Narromine line, in September 2020.

Narrabri to North Star crosses the three local government areas of Gwydir, Narrabri and Moree Plains. Due to its scale and complexity, it’s broken into two stages to enable first phase construction to begin while planning and environmental approvals are gained for the second phase.

Phase 1: Narrabri North to North Star

Phase 1 includes upgrading 171km of track along the existing rail corridor. 

Trans4m Rail, a joint venture between contractors John Holland and SEE Civil, was announced in November 2020 as the principal contractor for Phase 1 works.

The Phase 2 section includes upgrading approximately 13km of track from Alice Street, Moree across the Mehi-Gwydir floodplain to the eastern side of the Moree Gun Club. It also includes approximately 2km of new track at Camurra, north of Moree.

Rail safety

As construction begins we ask everyone to be vigilant, especially around level crossings.

Keep safe by stopping at all rail crossings, looking and listening for trains, complying with all warning signals and signs, and avoid entering the rail corridor or construction sites.
