Two More New Bridges for Narrabri Shire open to public

The Narrabri Shire Council will benefit from today’s opening of the new Brigalow Creek and Wee Waa Lagoon Creek bridges on Pilliga Road.

This project involved the replacement of four aging timber bridges that supported freight traffic on Pilliga Road and Cypress Way in the Narrabri, Wee Waa and Pilliga areas, including the Baradine Creek Bridge, Dubbo Creek Bridge, Brigalow Creek Bridge and Wee Waa Lagoon Creek Bridge.

It was primarily funded by a $5.3 million investment from the NSW Government under the Restart NSW Resources for Regions program.

Narrabri’s perfect dilemma

Narrabri’s perfect dilemma

The Northern Daily Leader Julie Maughan 2 Mar 2017, 11:44 a.m

Narrabri will feature harness racing again this Sunday with their big Carnival of Cups meeting presenting an eight race program.

Rubbers Dilemma from the Tony Missen stables will make a return in the opening event after the filly scored her first career win last week at Narrabri from six race starts. The win surprised Missen who trains the Blissful Hall filly – and races her along with Alan Tinden, Tamworth HRC Board member Greg McDonell and Bob Peterson – as the filly had only been in the stables for two weeks.

Narrabri Gas Project EIS leaves locals frustrated

Narrabri Gas Project EIS leaves locals frustrated

Western Magazine 3 March 2017

A 7000-page Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Narrabri Gas Project (NGP) that’s been at least five years in the making has the local community overwhelmed, with only 60 days to frame its response.

The EIS for the project was placed on public exhibition on 22 February 2017. 

Many in the community believe Santos has deliberately stymied the community’s response efforts by limiting availability of the file in an accessible electronic form.

Complying with its obligations of ease of use and accessibility, as promised to the local Community Consultative Committee.

NBN website update allows you to find out when network is available in your area

NBN website update allows you to find out when network is available in your area

ABC Monday 27 February

Have you wondered when you will have access to the NBN?

For the first time, you will be able to find out. The company has updated the website's address tracker to show a timeframe for when people in an area can connect to the National Broadband Network (NBN).

Previously, the NBN website told people when construction would begin in an area — not when the service would actually be available.

"The number one question we get asked by people is 'when will it actually be available?' so this new update gives people an answer to that very question," NBN spokesperson Dan Chamberlain told the ABC.

Inside the Santos gas 'thought bubble' that didn't fly

Fin Review

Towards the end of a frighteningly turbulent 2015, Santos management approached a small community of major Australian manufacturers and gas customers with invitations to acquire discounted equity in the strategically important but politically controversial Narrabri coal seam gas project.

Crossroads beat Tatts to book Narrabri grand final berth

Crossroads beat Tatts to book Narrabri grand final berth

northern daily leader

Craig Trindall wound back the clock as Crossroads snatched the minor premiership - and first grand final spot - from Tatts on Saturday.

The former NSW Country quick claimed a remarkable 8-37 to steamroll Tatts for 88 and bowl Crossroads to a 100 run win.

The result saw them leapfrog Tatts and finish on top, leaving the premiers and RSL to thrash it out next week for the remaining spot in the decider.

Trindall’s haul wasn’t the only outstanding effort for the round with Civeo openers Nick Smart and Lachlan Cameron both cracking centuries as they defeated RSL.

Smart hammered 110 in a 150-run opening stand with his districts captain, who carried his bat for 114 to pilot Civeo to 4-291.

Sunday and public holiday penalty rates will be reduced for full-time and part-time workers in the hospitality, retail and fast-food industries, the Fair Work Commission has ruled.

Key points:

Workers will continue to receive penalties but they will be reduced
Retailers say the decision means they can extend opening hours
Unions say low-paid workers will struggle to make ends meet
The Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) said nearly half a million people, including some of the country's lowest-paid workers, would lose up to $6,000 a year.

Santos­: Farmers fear One Nation is set to capitalise on CSG

Santos­: Farmers fear One Nation is set to capitalise on CSG

Miles Godfrey, The Daily Telegraph February 22, 2017 12:00am

THE state’s CSG wars have exploded back to life as Santos­ prepares to extract gas in northern NSW despite opposition from farmers who say the issue may give One Nation a foothold.

Santos has lodged plans to drill up to 850 coal seam gas wells across about 1000ha of Pilliga State Forest, south of Narrabri — unlocking half of NSW’s gas needs over the next 20 years and generating $1.2 billion in royalties for the state government. It could also create hundreds of jobs for regional and rural NSW.

“Natural gas has a vital role to play in delivering energy security, while having the additional benefit of being 50 per cent cleaner than coal, resulting in a significant reduction in carbon emissions,” Santos said.
