Australian Rail Track Corporation is dedicated to modernising rail in Australia and has done so for more than 20 years. Our principal business is to manage more than 8,500km of track over five states, including NSW, Queensland, SA, WA and Victoria.
Since 1997, we’ve invested billions of dollars to standardise, extend and upgrade our network – in fact, over the past 10 years, we’ve invested more than $6.5 billion into the network.
We are unashamed champions of rail as a cost efficient, reliable, safe and responsible mode of transport. And we’re proud to have contributed an average of more than $790 million a year over the past five years to the Australian economy each year.
We employ more than 1,500 people across the country, with 27 provisioning centres and main offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney and Wagga Wagga.
In addition to our ongoing maintenance schedule which runs
365 days a year across the network, we currently have more than $11 billion of
major projects underway, including the Port Botany Rail Line duplication
project, the Cabramatta Loop project, the North East Rail Line Upgrade, as well
as the Inland Rail Program.
Across our network we manage around 450 passenger and freight trains per day – that’s more than 164,000 trains a year – making ARTC a vital part of the nation’s transport supply chain and the economic development of Australia.
