The Melbourne to Brisbane Rail Alliance (MBIRA) has congratulated Rail Freight Alliance on the success of the 2019 Inland Rail Symposium, held in Melbourne last month.
MBIRA chair, Moree Plains Shire councillor Sue Price commended the Rail Freight Alliance's efforts in delivering the symposium, which was aimed at identifying opportunities and challenges associated with this transformational project.
"It is tremendous to bring together key organisations, industry leaders and all levels of government to work cooperatively to deliver this nation building project," she said.
"We recognise that there is still much work to be done around capability, capacity, safety and economics, and we welcome close engagement with the Australian Rail Track Corporation, industry, communities and local government through forums such as delivered by the Rail Freight Alliance.
"These priorities will ensure industry, government and all those associated with this project address the challenges, but also capitalise on economic development opportunities."
Cr Price said the MBIRA has championed the Inland Rail project and will continue to support it through initiatives like the conference.
"There is a clear message to all local governments that can access this infrastructure, get ready for the opportunities that come from this investment and the viability of Inland Rail as the right mode for particular commodities," she said.
