Just over a year ago, MU Group staff, in conjunction with Moree Plains Shire Council, hosted a series of technical workshops to outline an integrated transport solution that could form the basis of a Special Activation Precinct (SAP) and leverage the forthcoming Inland Rail (ILR) investment. A year later, with the announcement of the SAP and some much needed rain, there is less ‘vision’ required when considering the recently completed design works.
Mark Connolly, the Regional Activation Manager of MPSC said, “Those discussions and site inspections were critical. MU Group became our initial partners but that approach quickly widened and we sought to collaborate with everyone in this same, collaborative method. The future looks exciting for Moree and the refinements in the Intermodal Overpass are a critical aspect of the project. This will have major economic and safety benefits for local farmers, Moree and the Region”.
