The Melbourne to Brisbane Rail Alliance (MBIRA) has congratulated the Australian Logistics Council and Australian Railway Association on the success of the inaugural Inland Rail Conference held in Parkes.
Chair of MBIRA, Cr Sue Price of Moree Plains has commended their efforts in delivering the first industry-led conference aimed at identifying the opportunities and challenges associated with this nation-building project.
“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,” she said.
“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.”
Among the key action priorities to emerge were:
“Since 2007, MBIRA has been working hard to attract strategic investment in Australia’s infrastructure future,” Cr Price said.
“These priorities will ensure industry, government and all those associated with this project address the challenges, but also capitalise on economic development opportunities.”
