The Narromine to Narrabri project in mid-north western New South Wales is Inland Rail’s longest section of track.

This 306km of new track is a crucial part of delivering our fast and reliable freight rail service between Melbourne and Brisbane.

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Narromine to Narrabri project was on public display from Tuesday 8 December 2020 to Sunday 7 February 2021. To view the EIS, visit the NSW Department of Planning and Environment website.

All submissions will be provided to ARTC and published online. The EIS, all submissions and ARTC’s Response to Submissions Report will then be reviewed by NSW and Federal Governments. The NSW Minister for Planning and Public Spaces will make the final decision on whether the project is approved for construction.
