Project Description

This project will deliver 5 kilometres of new arrival and departure sidings at the Ettamogah Rail Hub so that trains calling at ERH can pull off the single track main-line. Currently trains stop on the mainline to exchange wagons at the hub. This will not be an option when Inland Rail is operational.

Benefits

  • Improved connectivity between people with jobs and services, and goods with markets
  • Improved freight productivity (and access to freight gateways)
  • Improved freight rail services

Funding

The Australian Government has committed $2.6 million towards the project.

Timetable

Construction is expected to commence late 2020 and be completed by mid 2021.
