Inland Rail Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), is building Inland Rail on behalf of the Australian Government.

As each section of Inland Rail is completed, it will be operated and managed by ARTC.

Inland Rail Pty Ltd was established as a wholly owned subsidiary of ARTC in May 2024, in line with the Australian Government’s response to the April 2023 Independent Review of Inland Rail conducted by Dr Kerry Schott AO.

Inland Rail Pty Ltd Chief Executive Officer Nick Miller:

“Inland Rail is the biggest rail infrastructure project ever undertaken by the Australian Government.

“By shifting more goods onto rail, Inland Rail will enable faster freight and safer, less congested roads with fewer emissions. It will also help us keep pace with the increasing freight demands of Australia’s growing population.

“We are making strong progress on the ground and delivering significant benefits for regional communities.”

Inland Rail Pty Ltd is delivering the Inland Rail project, a 1,600km freight line that will connect Australia, generating opportunities during construction and beyond, and linking regional producers and manufacturers to national and global markets.

With a staged delivery approach, we are prioritising the construction of sections between Beveridge, Vic, and Parkes, NSW, by 2027.

For sections north of Narromine, NSW, and into Queensland, we are securing primary environmental approvals and acquiring land for the corridor, so we can then provide the Australian Government with more certainty as to the full scope and cost of Inland Rail.
