About Inland Rail

Inland Rail is transforming how everyday goods are moved around our vast country. It will complete the backbone of the national freight network by providing transit times of less than 24 hours for freight trains between Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.

Creating the connectivity to shift more of Australia’s freight from road to rail, Inland Rail will enable safer, less congested highways, fewer carbon emissions, cheaper freight costs and new economic opportunities for our regions.

The largest infrastructure project ever delivered in Australia spanning 1,700km, Inland Rail is a shot in the arm for Australia’s economy, generating $16b in economic benefits and over 16,000 direct and indirect jobs.

The Australian Government selected the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) to deliver Inland Rail, in partnership with the private sector. Construction started in late-2018 and the project is expected to be operational in 2026.

Engaging local and Indigenous suppliers

ARTC is committed to creating sustainable economic development and employment opportunities for local and Indigenous businesses and individuals by maximising their opportunities to participate in the project.

ARTC will provide full, fair and reasonable opportunity for capable and competitive local and Indigenous businesses and social enterprises to compete for work or participate in supply chains associated with Inland Rail.
