When: Thursday 22 April 2021
What time: 11am - 1pm
Where: Rankin St, Forbes
More about this event:
The Stockinbingal to Parkes section of Inland Rail will involve upgrades along 170.3km of existing rail corridor between the towns of Stockinbingal and Parkes in south/central New South Wales.
Structures in this section of track need to be modified to accommodate the height and width of double-stacked freight trains.
Some of the works we’re planning include:
increasing vertical clearance on the Lachlan River Rail Bridge in Forbes
increasing vertical clearance under the Wyndham Avenue Road Bridge in Forbes
building a new crossing loop north of the Daroobalgie Road level crossing
Other clearance and safety works include modifying Forbes Railway Station and several existing crossing loops, structures and utilities along the line.The project is now in the reference design stage. During this time, we are conducting various environmental and technical investigations, engineering and design, hydrology studies and consulting with key stakeholders, communities and landowners to finalise plans for this project.
