Dr John McVeigh with a copy of the MBIRA media release on the success of the Inland Rail Conference 2018.

The inaugural Inland Rail Conference held last month in Parkes, New South Wales, brought together key players for the first industry-led conference aimed at identifying the opportunities and challenges associated with the project.

The Melbourne to Brisbane Rail Alliance (MBIRA) congratulated the Australian Logistics Council and Australian Railway Association on the success of the conference.

Chair of MBIRA, Moree Plains Shire Councillor, Sue Price, commended their efforts.

“It is tremendous to bring together the nation’s key industry leaders and all levels of government to work cooperatively to deliver this once-in-a-generation project.”

“We recognise that there is still much work to be done around capability, capacity, safety and economics, and we welcome the nine priorities that have emerged from the conference.”

“Since 2007, MBIRA has been working hard to attract strategic investment in Australia’s infrastructure future.”

“These priorities will ensure industry, government and all those associated with this project address the challenges, but also capitalise on economic development opportunities.”
