Parkes - Regional New South Wales
Parkes is on the cusp of a boom now that the first sod of the $10 billion Inland Rail project has been turned at the starting point ... in Parkes itself.
With the local council upgrading community facilities in readiness, contractors and workers have come to town, contributing to the local economy through both personal and business expenditure.
The State Government has big plans to unlock economic opportunities in the region and has announced a “Special Activation Precinct” where a national logistics hub is planned.
The Inland Rail will create better connections for local producers to international markets, bringing jobs and economic benefits to the Central Western Region of New South Wales.
