Community is invited to learn more at Narrabri meetings next week

The Inland Rail is getting closer to Narrabri.

Community members who are keen to know more about the project will have the opportunity to have their questions answered next week.

The Australian Rail Track Corporation will hold open information events in Narrabri on Monday and Tuesday September 3 and 4.

And on Thursday, business and industry representatives will be invited to an Inland Rail Business Forum in Narrabri which will further explore opportunities arising from the railway.

With the first track for Inland Rail due to be laid in the Central West soon, community members along the route have been encouraged to learn more about Inland Rail activities and opportunities in their region.

A community meeting focussed on the Narrabri to Narromine section will be held at The Crossing Theatre on Monday from 5.30-7.30pm.

And a ‘drop in’ session again focussed on the Narrabri-Narromine track will be held at Narrabri Bowling Club on Tuesday from 10am to 1pm.

The community sessions follow local industry briefings in August which were attended by nearly 400 local businesses and workers hoping to benefit from the project.

“We were very pleased with the turnout at our recent industry briefings and the enthusiasm of local companies and workers who want to make the most of the huge opportunities Inland Rail will bring,” Inland Rail NSW Community Engagement Manager Helena Orel said.
