The projects provided CCSI status are North Star to Border, Narromine to Narrabri, Illabo to Stockinbingal and Albury to Illabo. The Parkes to Narromine and Narrabri to North Star projects have already been declared CSSI.
These declarations are important for the Inland Rail Program because they reflect how significant delivering Inland Rail projects in NSW is to the Australian and NSW Governments and state agencies including the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
Each project will now have more delivery certainty during the transition from the planning approvals phase into detailed design and construction.
Inland Rail spokesperson Andrew Skele – Environment Manager NSW said achieving CSSI status will allow Inland Rail’s NSW projects to prioritise work activities which can help streamline overall Program delivery.
“Recognition by the NSW government via this declaration acknowledges the significant benefits Inland Rail projects will provide NSW regional communities, both through immediate job opportunities and future economic growth,” Andrew said.
“We can now get on with the job of delivering some key early works, such as replacement of existing utilities.
“Importantly, regional NSW communities can still have a say on Inland Rail as part our various project planning and approvals processes, including Environmental Impact Statements.
“Consulting with local farmers and landowners is essential to ensure we get Inland Rail right and deliver the program to the highest public safety standards.
“We will only commence early works on NSW projects once minor works approvals are in place and local communities are notified of upcoming work activity where it may impact them,” Andrew said.
“We look forward to working hand in hand with regional communities, the NSW government and regulators to successfully progress project approvals and deliver these priority projects.”
