Residents impacted by the Inland Rail Project have the opportunity to find out more about the progress, with the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) hosting community sessions in Parkes and Peak Hill.
Nearly half a million dollars has already been spent in the region's economy from the construction of the Inland Rail.
In an invitation extended to the community, ARTC says it wants to inform people of the contracts, jobs and opportunities the project will deliver.
The forums will cover updates on construction on the Parkes to Narromine section where 98.4 kilometres of existing rail track is being upgraded and 5.3 kilometres of new rail track is being built.
The first community information session will take place at the Inland Rail Community Hub at 290 Clarinda Street in Parkes on March 26, from 5pm to 6.30pm.
Peak Hill will host a forum on March 27 from 5pm to 6.30pm at the Peak Hill RSL, 57/61 Caswell Street, Peak Hill.
Parkes to Narromine Inland Rail Project Director Colin Forde said ARTC is committed to working closely with communities and stakeholders throughout the lifecycle of the project.
"With construction accelerating in the Central West, the benefits and jobs already flowing to regional Australia, we are excited to be partnering with local businesses to boost jobs,' he said.
"It's great to see 286 workers from INLink and their contractors now working on the Parkes to Narromine section.
