10:35 AM Fast-tracking Economic Growth: Albury Wodonga and the Inland Rail Project

A major regional capital and Australia’s 20th largest city, Albury Wodonga is adept at identifying the opportunities for economic growth presented by the Inland Rail project. Strategically located on the NSW – Victorian border, the twin cities service a regional economy valued at $6.8 billion and have recently entered into a ‘Two Cities One Community’ partnership to realise a shared vision for their wider community.

Under the adopted Inland Rail project alignment, Albury Wodonga will act as the stopping point on the Victorian-NSW border, opening up opportunities for the region into new markets and improving existing freight connectivity. Both AlburyCity and Wodonga Council have invested heavily in infrastructure to support the development of the Inland Rail project, including the NEXUS Industrial Precinct in Albury and Logic Wodonga, Wodonga’s freight and logistics hub with both precincts tenanted with rail terminals.

With comparative advantages in Manufacturing, Agribusiness and Transport and Logistics, Albury Wodonga is open for business and ready to capitalise on its strategic location.
