The Regional Intelligence report for Victoria found Inland Rail can sustain another 940 full-time jobs by the rail line’s 10th year of operation for areas alongside the rail line between Melbourne and the New South Wales border.

Altogether, Inland Rail is capable of a $4.6 billion boost to gross regional product for the 49 local government areas covered in this research over a 50-year period. Those outcomes build on the jobs and economic uplift from construction and operation outlined in the 2015 business case for Inland Rail.
