This very long running project is ticking along. It's now in operation between Port Augusta and Whyalla and works underway to extend it to Kalgoorlie.

In the Stockinbingal to Parkes (S2P) section, the Daroobalgie crossing loop between Forbes and Parkes, has been fast-tracked with construction due to start next year. https://inlandrail.artc.com.au/26 ...

I wonder if ARTC will retain the line between Coota and Illabo once the new Inland Rail section is in use. They may well mothball it to save on maintenance.

The Liberal Party majority needs to reject this minority of malcontents. Voters know this has nothing to do with electricity prices.

The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) today announced INLink is the preferred construction contractor for the Parkes to Narromine section of Inland Rail ahead of the contract signing.
