Sounds like they will extend the Sydney metro a bit further....

The Metro isn't going to make it that far out of Sydney.....

Probably just a station upgrade to make things nicer for passengers as it says. Maybe something to do with the new regional rolling stock as well but I'm not sure exactly.

Seeing that both state and federal agencies are planning works around the station, I would hope there is at least a degree of cooperation.
Looking at the Inland Rail fly through video implies the whole station yard is on an embankment, which leads up to a new and higher bridge over the Mehi River. It's also implied that the Gwyder Highway goes under the track, but an actual underpass is not depicted. If the station sits on an embankment presently, it's subtle.
The NSW Trains Lockup is not expressly shown in the video; is it to be relocated, or just not important enough to be shown on the Inland Rail video?

The heritage listed brick station building and an embankment don't seem to be compatible, unless they jack it up!

Inland Rail maps show a "proposed level crossing" at the Gwydir Highway, just north of Moree station.

Unless there's been majore earthworks there, the area from the the river across the Gwyder highway and pretty much past the Silo sub terminal is pretty much flat, not quite level.  There is an embankment near the station on the eastern side, which is the remains of the where the old loco depot was.  The area and like many others has been cleared up a lot and I would imagine when ILR arrives there will be other changes made, doubt the station will be touched as its a heritage item.
