The NSW Government has signed a contract with Momentum Trains to build a new regional rail fleet and purpose-built rail maintenance facility in Dubbo. Momentum Trains has started work on detailed designs for the Dubbo Maintenance Facility and the new fleet. The Project will create jobs and business opportunities in the area during construction, final train fit-out and operational phases. There will be opportunities for Aboriginal businesses and suppliers to work on the project. More information about the project is available here. Event Description Momentum Trains will provide a project briefing and share information about the opportunities available for Aboriginal businesses and suppliers to get involved.
