Speak to ARTC about Inland Rail Project

Monday, 22 October, 2018

Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) teams want to hear from locals in north east Victoria this week about Inland Rail and the North East Line Upgrade during six community pop up information sessions.

The scope of works for the $235 million North East Line Upgrade has been accepted by the Australian government, and work is scheduled to start next year to upgrade the line to a Victorian Class 2 performance standard.

“Those works will include replacing and adding ballast, mudhole removal, drainage improvements, relocating signalling wires underground, railway bridge replacement and improvement, rail replacement and rejuvenation, and track improvement works at level crossings,” said Brian Green, ARTC’s General Manager of Asset Management.

At the same time Inland Rail in Victoria is preparing for enhancement works along the north east rail corridor to support the running of double stack freight trains as part of the programme building a rail freight link between Melbourne and Brisbane.
