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.
