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.

Please note that the reference design may change as a result of further investigations, government approvals, or during the detailed design phase.
