Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce has badged the multibillion-dollar inland rail link a “great” carbon abatement project, raising hopes within the Liberal Party that the junior Coalition partner may yet agree to adopt net zero emissions by 2050.

While defending the project in federal Parliament on Tuesday, Mr Joyce said each train on the 1700-kilometre link between Melbourne and Brisbane would remove from the road 150 semi-trailers, each of which uses about 600 litres of diesel.
