Works and planning for Phase 2: Moree to Camurra

Phase 2 of Narrabri to North Star involves upgrading approximately 13km of track and building approximately 2km of new track across the Mehi-Gwydir floodplain at Camurra, north of Moree.

We are currently conducting environmental assessments and technical investigations in conjunction with extensive consultation with landholders, local councils, and industry groups. Engineering design consultants WSP Australia and Mott MacDonald Australia are developing the Environmental Impact Statement for this phase.

Works in Phase 2 include:

  • revising the position of the railway corridor to provide the maximum operational efficiency. This includes bypassing the current hairpin turn at Camurra
  • raising railway heights to achieve improved flood immunity and enhance operational capability
  • replacing and realigning existing bridges over the Mehi and Gwydir rivers
  • upgrading cross drainage and associated flood management works
  • modifying, closing or replacing level crossings to improve safety, integrate with the revised railway alignment and maintain property access
  • replacing or upgrading of utilities, infrastructure and fencing affected by the track upgrade.

Phase 2 works will link to Phase 1 construction and the Mungindi line that branches off at Camurra.
