We are committed to working with landowners and stakeholders in the Narromine to Narrabri communities to receive their feedback as we progress our planning.
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.
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.
There are currently no upcoming consultation events.
Your consultative committee
A Community Consultative Committee (CCC) has been established for local communities in the Narromine to Narrabri 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.
Leave your feedback on the interactive map
We have developed an interactive map of the current project design. Drop a pin on the map to add your comment. Your feedback will help us get a better understanding of key issues from a community perspective.
Information on how the study area was determined is detailed in the Narromine to Narrabri Options Report.
