The purpose of the report is to undertake a professional, independent assessment of the likely economic and supply chain opportunities arising from the commissioning of the Inland Rail (i.e. post-construction). It is to assess the extent to which Inland Rail might lead to economic and other benefits for the region.
The project has combined industry consultations with a range of stakeholders, including businesses and government agencies, and a regional economic impact analysis.
This will highlight the potential impacts on businesses from the Inland Rail, the operational and service assumptions as they relate to Parkes and the Central West region, and the potential implications on supply chains.
The report will be published here around May 2017.
