THE redevelopment works of the Inverell Saleyards are reaching the final stages.
Supported by a $2.5 million grant from the federal government, the project began in November 2018 and once complete, will be among the best in the region.
So far, the construction works have included construction of the facility's new roof, construction of more than 300 new selling pens and a new administration area.
New England MP Barnaby Joyce said recent works had included construction of driver amenities, parking facilities and double bay drive through truck wash, which would be suitable for B-triple road trains.
"This construction project is right now providing significant economic boost for a community still heavily affected drought, supporting jobs and driving wealth back into the local economy," Mr Joyce said.
"It is great to see this modern selling facility in Inverell in its final stages of completion which will soon be able to process more cattle with increased efficiency to deliver better returns for agents and producers across the New England North West."
AAM Investment Group CEO Tim Gallagher said significant improvements to major yard areas had been appreciated and acknowledged by all users of the facility.
"Substantial private and government funded investment into the redevelopment will secure the future of IRLX for the regions livestock producers for decades to come," Mr Gallagher said.
"We look forward to welcoming all on site when we are able to."
