Australian Rail Track Corporation

The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) has been appointed by the Australian Government to deliver Inland Rail, the multi-billion dollar infrastructure programme, in partnership with the private sector.

Since 2014, ARTC has been working on pre-construction activities, including preparation of a detailed business case, refinement of the route in conjunction with extensive community consultation, and preliminary design.

As the operator and manager of Australia’s national rail freight network, ARTC has successfully delivered more than $5 billion in capital upgrades to the national rail freight network, making it well qualified to manage a project of the scale and significance of Inland Rail.

ARTC has been part of the recent history of Inland Rail, developing a 10-year delivery schedule developed in 2015, and managing the 2010 Inland Rail Alignment Study, which has provided the base case for current work.
ARTC was created after the Commonwealth and State Governments agreed in 1997 to the formation of a ‘one stop shop’ for all operators seeking access to the national interstate rail network.

ARTC plays a critical role in the transport supply chain and in the overall economic development of Australia. Its network is used to move a range of commodities including general freight, coal, iron ore, other bulk minerals and agricultural products. It’s also important in providing access for interstate and inter-city passenger services to train operators.

Across its network, ARTC is responsible for:

  • Selling access to train operators
  • Developing new business
  • Capital investment in the corridors
  • Managing the network
  • Managing infrastructure maintenance
