Moree – Inverell Rail Line Open For Business
The three kilometre section of railway line from Moree-Inverell to Broadbent Grain and the Tycannah Street Level Crossing is open for business with first train is expected in March and more in April to accommodate the recent bumper harvest.
For your safety, please be aware that the GIVEWAY signs at Tycannah Street level crossing have changed to STOP signs. This means you must STOP on approaching the level crossing and look to ensure that a train is not approaching before crossing over.
Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) has recently completed renewal works on the Moree to Inverell Rail Line and upgrading the level crossing at Tycannah Street as part of the NSW Government’s Fixing Country Rail program being undertaken across the state. The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) has now taken over responsibility for management and maintenance of the line for TfNSW.
Thank you for your co-operation whilst we all adapt to the changing and increased use of the Tycannah Street level crossing as a result of these upgrades. These works will significantly increase the loading amount on rail to service the region. Achieving this helps to balance the use of road and rail freight to reduce costs for growers and boost the local economy.
