Albury station.

Martinus Rail has been awarded a $403.5 million contract to design and deliver Inland Rail enhancement works on the 183km section of track between Albury to Illabo, and the 170km of track between Stockinbingal to Parkes.

These works include enhancements to station precincts in Albury, Wagga Wagga and Forbes, bridge upgrades, track lowering and slews, and an additional crossing loop at Daroobalgie to create the height and width clearances required for doubled-stacked freight trains.

On-site works are planned to commence between Stockinbingal and Parkes by late-2023 with works between Albury and Illabo planned to commence by mid-2024. 

Construction will only proceed once final approvals are obtained.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, Catherine King, said the Federal Government is committed to getting the delivery of Inland Rail back on track.

“With this contract we are living up to our commitment to prioritise the completion of Inland Rail south of Parkes by 2027.”

Federal Minister for Finance, Katy Gallagher, said progressing the Inland Rail stages south of Parkes will unlock the benefits of Inland Rail sooner, creating local jobs and boosting regional communities.

“Inland Rail is supporting Australian companies, with more than $2.7 billion in contracts already awarded to over 400 suppliers and businesses across the country.”
