STATUS: Credibly proposed
SECTOR: Rail
JURISDICTION: Commonwealth, NSW, QLD
PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Unknown
TYPE: Greenfield

The circa $10 billion Inland Rail project would see the creation of a 1,700 kilometre Melbourne to Brisbane freight rail line along Australia's east-coast - bypassing the congested Sydney network and the circuitous north coast line via Australia’s four richest farming regions in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

The North Star to NSW-QLD Border (NS2B) will comprise the construction of circa 38 kilometres of new track and the upgrade of circa 35 kilometres of existing track, connecting North Star in NSW to Yelarbon in Queensland.

The preferred corridor, announced in February 2017, runs along the disused rail corridor towards Boggabilla, crossing the Macintyre River before joining the Queensland Rail South West Rail Line.

Community consultation and corridor refinement will continue before commencing the environmental approvals process.
