Narrabri to North Star Phase 2 – Environmental Impact Statement progress update

We are currently finalising the project’s EIS which will be submitted to the Department of Planning and Environment in the next few months.

Track on the Narrabri to North Star section

Following the submission the community will be invited to provide feedback on the EIS during the public exhibition period, which is planned for later this year. During this period, Inland Rail will host several community information sessions and drop-in events in Moree to answer questions on the EIS and provide guidance on how to make a submission to DPE.

Inland Rail will notify the community of the public exhibition period through the Inland Rail website, social media and local newspapers.

The Narrabri to North Star Phase 2 project runs from north of Alice Street, Moree across the Mehi-Gwydir floodplain to the eastern side of the Moree Gun Club. The work involves upgrading 13.7km of existing track and building 1.6km of new track. The new section of the track crosses the Mehi-Gwydir floodplain at Camurra, north of Moree.
