Moree Inland Rail Office Now Open

The Inland Rail Moree Office is now open, providing a greater link between the local community and Government leading up to and throughout the construction of the rail track.

Long-time local resident Angela Doering has been appointed by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development as the first Inland Rail Regional Liaison Officer (RLO) to be based in Moree to work with communities and local businesses along the alignment.

The Moree office will cover Inland Rail from Narrabri in New South Wales to the Queensland border and help locals to identify and connect to the benefits of Inland Rail. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, Michael McCormack said the office would provide a greater link between community and Government.

"Inland Rail is expected to support 5,000 jobs in New South Wales and provide a boost of more than $2.5 billion to the state economy, so it’s vital that we have specialist expertise working with businesses and local communities to connect people to these benefits,” Mr McCormack said. "This office will provide the opportunity for Moree and surrounding communities to talk directly to Government about regional development outcomes and economic opportunities available ahead of the construction of the next section of Inland Rail – the Narrabri to North Star (N2NS).”

Member for Parkes and Minister for Regional Services, Decentralisation and Local Government, Mark Coulton said Moree and the surrounding region is uniquely positioned to drive future freight productivity through road and rail connections to Inland Rail. “Moree is already one of the highest producing agricultural shires in Australia, Narrabri has just successfully launched its Inland Port concept and Gwydir has real aspirations about benefiting from Inland Rail,” Mr Coulton said. “Our investment through Inland Rail builds the essential connections that this region needs to further grow and strengthen their markets, and with the Moree Regional Office now open we can really focus on maximising those outcomes.”

“I’m thrilled that local resident Angela Doering has been appointed to the Moree office and will be on the ground to support the implementation of Australian Government programs such as the Inland Rail Interface Improvement Program and expansion of the CSIRO’s Inland Rail TraNSIT study to model potential Inland Rail cost savings.”
