Newell Highway Study

The Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities is developing a Newell Highway Strategy in consultation with the NSW Government and key stakeholders to provide a comprehensive picture of the highway’s current performance and future challenges. This strategy will focus on the relationship between the Newell Highway and Inland Rail in delivering efficient outcomes in the movement of regional freight and also the challenges such as road safety and flooding events. This strategy will be used to inform the investment decision of both Federal and State Governments.

Michael McCormack, Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, states that community, local government and industry involvement will be central to the strategy, ensuring the Government proceeds based on the best transport and economic data and a thorough understanding of communities and business needs and expectations. Moree Plains Shire Mayor, Katrina Humphries will head the community consultation along with Bland Shire Councillor Tony Lord, to encourage locals to get involved and have their say. A number of workshops will be held along the corridor at different locations so that communities can inform outcomes and the recommendations in the strategy.

Further details about the Newell Highway Corridor Strategy can be found on the Department’s website.
