These investigations are to identify and locate utilities and do not mean approval has been given for major construction to begin.

In Albury, site investigations will take place at Albury Station, Riverina Highway and Billy Hughes bridge, commencing January 22.

Wagga Wagga investigations will commence on January 29 at the Wagga Wagga Station footbridge, Cassidy Parade footbridge, Edmondson Street bridge and Pearson Street.

In Junee, site investigations will commence on January 29 around the Kemp Street bridge. In February, utilities contractors working on behalf of Inland Rail will undertake works to relocate gas services in the vicinity of Kemp Street bridge.

Site investigations include boreholes and other groundworks and will occur during normal construction hours of 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.
