Railway Technology reported that Australian Rail Track (ARTC) has selected Jacobs Engineering Group in a joint venture (JV) with GHD to conduct a feasibility study and environmental impact assessment for a 300km new greenfield track of the Inland Rail programme in New South Wales (NSW). Under the contract, Jacobs Engineering Group will provide further engineering design and conduct environmental studies to determine the preferred route for the proposed 40m to 60m wide rail corridor. ARTC Inland Rail CEO Mr Richard Wankmuller said that “This important feasibility design work will give us critical information in terms of engineering, environmental, traffic flows, socio-economic impacts and benefits and other areas of interest. It will lay the groundwork for the detailed design for this section and help identify how we can adjust to address community concerns.”

The new 300km long track forms part of Inland Rail’s Narromine to Narrabri (N2N) project, which is one of the 13 projects of the Inland Rail programme.

He said that “Inland Rail will connect farms, mines, cities and ports to global markets, providing significant supply chain benefits.”
