Parkes is gearing up to host a conference on the Inland Rail project as construction of the Parkes-to-Narromine section edges closer.
The town is co-hosting this inaugural conference with the Australian Logistics Council (ALC) and the Australasian Railway Association (ARA) on July 18 and 19 at the Parkes Leagues Club.
More than 200 people have registered to attend, representing governments, councils, rail and freight industries and farming communities.
The event will bring together key players involved in the Inland Rail project to discuss how the project will transform the movement of freight in Australia.
The conference will also explore the importance of the Inland Rail Project to the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, now being developed by the Federal Government for release in late 2018.
Among the 26 confirmed speakers are deputy prime minister Michael McCormack, Opposition spokesman for infrastructure and transport Anthony Albanese, state roads minister Melinda Pavey, and NSW deputy premier and state nationals leader John Barilaro.
Parkes mayor Ken Keith said his city had been “a big promoter of the inland rail”.
