Opportunities with Inland Rail – Information Session

Picture1.jpg

The sessions outline initiatives for your community to maximise the benefits of Inland Rail.

About this Event

The sessions will:

  • Present on 'Are you ready for Inland Rail?', promoting a discussion, led by representatives from the Regional Australia Institute, around the region's competitive advantage, including its key strengths, weaknesses and the potential opportunities arising from Inland Rail.

  • The Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development (the Department), will cover all aspects of the Australian Government's Inland Rail Interface Improvement Program (the II Program). The $44 million II Program will support feasibility and business case studies in two areas: productivity enhancements related to rail-based supply chains, and improvements to capacity on key country rail lines along the Inland Rail corridor.

Together, these presentations will assist local communities, industry and government to reflect local social and economic characteristics when identifying potential project proposals for the II Program. The session will also outline the expression of interest process for submitting project proposals for the II Program and the selection criteria for determining eligibility.

The Department welcomes attendance from community, local and state governments, including regional organisations of councils, industry organisations, supply chain managers, Regional Development Australia committees, traditional landowner representatives, Chambers of Commerce, local businesses, producers and freight and train operators.

Additional information

Registration will commence at 10:30am with a starting time of 11:00am.

Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day.

Lunch will be provided on the day, please include any dietary requirements in your RSVP.

TraNSIT Supply Chain Mapping Industry Workshop Griffith

Supply Chain Mapping Project Stage 1

Southern Corridor – Narromine to Seymour

Griffith Industry Workshop

CSIRO’s Transport Network Strategic Investment Tool (TraNSIT) model is being rolled out along the Inland Rail southern corridor (from the Narromine to Seymour regions), to determine the potential transport cost savings from Inland Rail for regional supply chains. The Phase 1 study will build on an earlier pilot project that projected significant transport cost savings for horticulture and post-processed food supply chains: the pilot project can be accessed at https://www.inlandrail.gov.au/csiro-supply-chain-mapping.

The Phase 1 study outputs will form the evidence base for:

Estimating the expected transport related regional benefits of Inland Rail for different commodities and their associated supply chains;

Informing future public or private investments to leverage the benefits of Inland Rail for regional Australia.

This workshop will provide an introduction to the CSIRO TraNSIT team, and explain the project scope, methodology, information security and privacy provisions. A key objective of the workshop will be to confirm the appropriateness of the proposed project study area. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions relating to the study.

Following the workshop, CSIRO will be arranging one on one meetings in order to gather data to inform the study.

Date: Thursday, 18 July 2019

Time: 2.00pm - 4.00pm

Light refreshments provided.

Venue: Burley Griffin Room, Griffith Regional Theatre 1 Neville Place Griffith NSW 2680
