The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) has invited local businesses in Albury, Wagga Wagga, and Forbes to propose future business opportunities for the 185km Albury to Illabo project and the 170km Stockinbingal to Parkes project.

Businesses that attend one of the ARTC’s three networking events this July will pitch their ideas to the shortlisted contractors John Holland, FreightConnect and Martinus Rail for these projects, and could win future work.

The regional supplier briefings will be held on the following dates:

  • Albury: Monday 18 July 2022 between 4pm and 6:30pm at Commercial Club Albury (618 Dean Street)
  • Wagga Wagga: Tuesday 19 July 2022 between 4pm and 6:30pm at Wagga RSL Club (Dobbs Street)
  • Forbes: Wednesday 20 July 2022 between 4pm and 6:30pm at Club Forbes (Templar Street)

Project Director of Inland Rail (Tottenham to Narromine), Melvyn Maylin, said that ARTC Inland Rail is providing new opportunities for local businesses to engage with the Inland Rail program as they progress towards construction.

“These briefings are intended to help get as many local people as possible involved with the project,” Mr Maylin said.

“We are inviting local businesses who are keen to be involved in Inland Rail to join us at this networking event, hear from the shortlisted contractors and meet with representatives from each organisation.

“Inland Rail is being predominantly delivered in regional Australia, meaning there is a prime opportunity for regional Australia to reap the immediate benefits that come with construction.

“The relationships that we establish with communities and businesses now will also support regions to prepare for the long-term economic opportunities that come with connectivity to this fast, efficient and cost-competitive freight transport.”
