Infrastructure initiative to drive development in the Narromine Region

As part of the Governments COVID-19 Recovery Plan, the Australian Government is fast tracking approvals through a number of projects, including the Inland Rail Project, running through the Narromine Shire.

The $10 Bn interstate freight project, scheduled to deliver 1700km of track by 2025, will receive a commonwealth cash injection to speed up construction as part of the Government’s $72Bn infrastructure investment to kickstart job growth.

Narromine Shire Council’s Mayor, Cr Craig Davies “As a Shire, we welcome the announcement for fast tracking approvals and construction advancements on the Inland Rail Project and hope that this should fast track the commencement of the Narromine to Narrabri line”

“To date, the Region has seen little benefit from the project and trust that this announcement will open additional Federal funding opportunities for complimentary infrastructure”

Construction for the Narromine to Narrabri line is scheduled for late 2021 – 2025 and includes approximately 300km of new track.
