The Narrabri to North Star section of Inland Rail will upgrade 189km of existing rail corridor and construct approximately 2km of new track near Moree, New South Wales.

This is the second section of Inland Rail to enter construction, following the commissioning of the Parkes to Narromine line, in September 2020.

Narrabri to North Star crosses the three local government areas of Gwydir, Narrabri and Moree Plains. Due to its scale and complexity, it’s broken into two phases to enable first phase of construction to begin while planning and environmental approvals are gained for the second phase.

Phase 1: Narrabri North to North Star

Major construction on the Narrabri to North Star Phase 1 section is now complete. Work involved upgrading 176km of track along the existing corridor.

Trans4m Rail, a joint venture between contractors John Holland and SEE Civil, was the principal contractor for Phase 1 works.
