New portal facilitating local supplier access to Inland Rail supply opportunities goes live
The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) has launched an online portal for local and Indigenous businesses to access upcoming supply opportunities on the Inland Rail Tottenham to Albury project.
Prospective subcontractors, suppliers, and equipment providers interested in supplying to the design and construct contractor for Stage 1 of this project are encouraged to register their interest now via the ICN Gateway before construction starts later this year.
ICN Gateway is Australia’s largest business networking platform dedicated to maximising Australian industry participation in major project supply chains. ICN Gateway is hosted by Industry Capability Network (ICN).
Inland Rail’s Head of Commercial, David Watt said the ICN Gateway alerts local businesses when new opportunities are available to become involved in the project.
“We’re committed to awarding contracts and purchasing local products, services and equipment where possible to deliver this key rail infrastructure project for North East Victoria,” Mr Watt said.
“ICN Gateway is a key tool for us to connect with local businesses and alert them to a range of worthwhile opportunities. This not only helps us deliver Inland Rail, but also extensively supports the local economy.”
Inland Rail is a 1,700km fast freight backbone that will transform how we move goods around Australia by providing transit times of less than 24 hours between Melbourne and Brisbane.
The Tottenham to Albury section of Inland Rail will upgrade 305km of existing rail corridor between metropolitan Melbourne and the Victoria-NSW border at Albury-Wodonga.
