About Inland Rail


Inland Rail is a fast freight backbone stretching more than 1,700km that will transform how we move goods around Australia by providing transit times of less than 24 hours between Melbourne and Brisbane.

It will better link businesses, manufacturers and producers to national and global markets and generate new opportunities for existing and emerging industries.

Comprising 13 individual projects, Inland Rail is the largest freight rail infrastructure project in Australia and will enable safer, less congested highways, fewer carbon emissions, cheaper freight costs and new economic opportunities for our regions.

Inland Rail is a shot in the arm for Australia's economy, generating $18b in economic benefits and more than 21,500 direct and indirect jobs.

The Australian Government selected the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) to deliver Inland Rail, in partnership with the private sector.


Albury to Parkes Enhancement Projects


The Albury to Parkes section involves extensive enhancements to specific sites across the 355km of existing track running from Albury to Illabo and Stockinbingal to Parkes.

The enhancements will provide the necessary vertical and horizontal clearance along the existing 'Main South Line' corridor to support the safe running of double-stacked freight trains up to 1,800m long and 6.5m high.

The Albury to Parkes section is divided into two segments:

Albury to Illabo

Stockinbingal to Parkes

In mid-2022, ARTC appointed Laing O'Rourke as one of three elected contractors to bid for the Albury to Parkes enhancement projects. Laing O'Rourke is currently preparing its competitive bid for these projects.

The Tottenham to Albury section of Inland Rail will upgrade 305km of existing rail corridor between metropolitan Melbourne and the Victoria-NSW border at Albury-Wodonga.


Due to its scale and complexity, this project is broken into two stages:

  • Stage One: Beveridge to Albury
  • Stage Two: Metropolitan Melbourne

The Gowrie to Kagaru section of Inland Rail in Queensland will be designed, built, managed and financed through a Public Private Partnership (PPP).

The Gowrie to Kagaru section is divided into three separate projects:

  • Gowrie to Helidon
  • Helidon to Calvert
  • Calvert to Kagaru

The Central Civil Works Program will focus on an 85km (approximately) section between North Star in New South Wales and Whetstone in Queensland as well as a separate 14km package south of Moree called Narrabri to North Star Phase 2.

The Works are allowing for future connections to Goondiwindi and the broader region. It follows the existing track north from North Star before crossing Bruxner Way and the border to join the existing Queensland Rail line.

The Northern Civil Works Program comprises approximately 138km of new dual gauge track and approximately 69km of upgraded track and crosses the local government areas of Goondiwindi and Toowoomba.

The Northern Civil Works section of Inland Rail will connect one of Australia's most productive farming regions to markets across the country.

Once complete, Inland Rail will help producers be more competitive, connecting them to markets in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth more efficiently, more reliably and in larger volumes.

The Illabo to Stockinbingal (I2S) section of Inland Rail involves construction of approximately 39km of new single track between Illabo and Stockinbingal. The route will bypass the townships of Cootamundra and Bethungra and the winding, steep section of track known as the Bethungra Spiral on the Main South line; opening up a more efficient way to transport freight through the area. It also includes upgrading approximately 3km of existing track along this section.
