Business Case

The Inland Rail Business Case developed by ARTC provides a rigorous assessment of why Inland Rail is needed, including its significant economic, social and environmental benefits.

The purpose of the Business Case was to:

  • Identify the problem and vision for the east coast corridor
  • Confirm the scope, opportunities and costs
  • Provide a 10-year delivery schedule
  • Present demand estimates
  • Analyse economic and financial implications
  • Identify governance arrangements to support the effective delivery of Inland Rail
