Interesting. Equates to around $100/sleeper.
Wonder how much Victoria pays for their lightweight sleepers?

I dont know why they call these things 'feasibility' at this stage - its going to happen regardless of the feasibility results.  Just call it design and move on.

Because at the moment, 'Feasible' meaning unproven, is all the plan is.
The 'Proof of the Pudding' will be when its completed.

At least the IR will inject money and hopefully create jobs in rural communities.

Maldon to Dombarton (NSW) was sposed to be "Nation Building" too.

Will there be missing IR links in 50 years?
  neillfarmer Train Controller

The project is moving at a snail's pace. The only actual physical work has been upgrading existing links. I guess that makes sense since that money will be beneficial immediately. As for tunnelling under the Toowoomba Range and building to Kagaru, well, I will believe it when I see it.

Albury council will be briefed in the coming days on the many changes to rail network being introduced by inland rail.
