The proposed route of Australia’s ambitious inland rail project connecting NSW to Melbourne and Brisbane will be scrutinised in an inquiry following concerns from the state’s farmers.
The management of the $10 billion rail project by the Australian Rail Track Corporation and the Commonwealth will be investigated in a wide ranging 12-month review by the
Senate’s rural and regional affairs and transport committee.
Landowners are concerned about the proposed route.NSW Farmers chief executive Peter Arkle said many landholders were concerned about the current planned route and feared a proposed app to track trains so graziers can safely get stock to cross the rail line won’t work in areas of mobile black spots.
“Our members across the corridor through NSW have had longstanding concerns with the way that this rail has been progressing and have a lot of unanswered questions as to why decisions have been taken that will have a really profound effect on fourth of fifth generation farmers in some cases,” he said.
