The Australian Government has welcomed additional public health and safety measures implemented by the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) on national rail infrastructure projects during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said Inland Rail’s construction would continue with other major construction projects, critical to securing the nation’s freight future.
“More than 1,700 people have worked on Inland Rail since construction began, including 667 locals on the Parkes to Narromine project. The economic injection from this project has been immense with $89 million spent with local businesses and 97 local businesses engaged as suppliers,” Mr McCormack said.
“Now more than ever, we need these essential construction services and the economic stimulus to continue, not just to keep people in work, but to ensure we’re in the best place possible to build momentum when we see through this global health crisis.
