The Australian Rail Track Corporation Ltd. (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. Its network is also important in providing access for interstate and inter-city passenger services.
ARTC has been tasked by the Australian Government with developing a ten year program to deliver the Inland Rail programme. Inland Rail is a new freight rail connection that will complete the backbone of the national freight network between Melbourne and Brisbane via regional New South Wales and Queensland.SHOW LESS
