We are committed to working with landowners and stakeholders in the Narrabri to North Star communities to receive their feedback as we progress our planning.

To date, our team has spoken with many affected property owners and community members through one-on-one discussions, briefings, meetings and workshops. This consultation has been used to discuss key project elements such as flood management, level crossings and community issues as well as discussing impacts associated with Inland Rail. Locals have been generous in sharing their knowledge and we have received a lot of valuable feedback to date and will continue to gather feedback as the project continues. We encourage you to get involved in the process and invite you to contact the project team for more information and to provide feedback at any time.

Phase 1: Narrabri North to North Star

Even though construction on Phase 1 is nearing completion, we still want to hear from the community about how we are doing and if there is anything we could do better.

If you have something to say, we would love to hear from you. Please scroll down the page to complete our Narrabri to North Star Phase 1 community feedback survey.

Phase 2: Moree to Camurra

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process for Phase 2 (the Mehi-Gwydir floodplain track crossing and the new track at Camurra) commenced in mid-2020. The EIS was formally lodged with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) in early September 2022 and was on public display between 21 September 2022 and 9 November 2022.

We are currently conducting additional studies in response to DPE’s request for further information and to answer questions submitted in response to the EIS exhibition. The results will be collated and published in a Preferred Infrastructure Report (PIR) that will be distributed together with our Response to Submissions (RtS) report. We will notify the community on this website and via our regular newsletter when the documents will become available online.

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 document.

Phase 2 Community Reference Group

In mid-2023 a Community Reference Group (CRG) for the Narrabri to North Star Phase 2 section was established to inform development of the project as we transition through the Environmental Impact Statement approvals phase.

The CRG will gather and disseminate information regarding the project throughout the community and bring representative views from the community back to the Group. The CRG consists of twelve community members and two members representing the Moree Plains Shire Council.

The CRG is led by experienced Independent Chairperson, Mr Mike Silver. The Chair can invite non-members to attend meetings, either as observers or to provide advice to the Group.

If you would like to raise a topic for discussion or attend the next meeting please contact Mr Silver on
