The Albury to Parkes section involves extensive enhancements to specific sites across the 355 kilometres of existing track running from Albury to Illabo and Stockinbingal to Parkes.
The enhancements would provide the necessary vertical and horizontal clearance along the existing ‘Main South Line’ corridor to support the safe running of double-stacked freight trains up to 1,800 metres long and 6.5 metres high.
The Albury to Parkes section is divided into two separate projects:
Albury to Illabo
The 185 kilometres of existing rail corridor from the VIC-NSW border at Albury to Illabo includes adjustments to approximately 44 kilometres of existing tracks. The enhancement project comprises Works at specific sites to achieve horizontal and vertical clearance requirements for double-stacked trains.
The Works include track slews and reconfigurations, bridge removals, bridge modifications, bridge replacements, track lowering, signalling gantry replacements, level crossing modifications and other associated works.

Stockinbingal to Parkes
This 170.3 kilometre stretch of Inland Rail involves enhancing specific sites along the existing rail corridor between Stockinbingal and Parkes to achieve horizontal and vertical clearance requirements for double-stacked trains.
The Stockinbingal to Parkes Project will also enhance capacity by constructing a new crossing loop north of the Daroobalgie Road level crossing (Daroobalgie Crossing Loop).
The Works include track slews, bridge modifications, track lowering, other structure modifications, upgrading a level crossing at Daroobalgie Road, a new crossing loop and other associated works.
