Works and planning
Choosing the route for the 306km Narromine to Narrabri section of Inland Rail has involved years of investigations and close consultation with communities and stakeholders.
A focused area of investigation has been identified for the Narromine to Narrabri section and been refined to a proposed rail corridor that is approximately 40 to 60m wide.
Check out some visualisations of the Narromine to Narrabri alignment.
These images are illustrative and not to scale. They are based on the reference design and may change as a result of further investigations, government approvals or during the detailed design stage of the project.
