This 39km section of Inland Rail connects North Star in New South Wales to the Queensland Rail South Western System on the NSW/QLD border.
The project includes upgrading 25km of non-operational rail line and 14km of new track across the Macintyre River, allowing for future connections to Goondiwindi and the broader region. It follows the existing track north from North Star before crossing Bruxner Way and the border to join the existing Queensland Rail line.
The project is currently in the reference design stage. During this time, we are conducting various studies and consulting with landowners and other key stakeholders to better understand potential issues and opportunities around the Macintyre River crossing.
