The Prime Minister and John Fullerton, CEO of the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), have announced that ARTC will fast track a major upgrade to the east-west national rail network.
The upgrade will involve 1200 kilometres of rail replacement between Adelaide and Tarcoola, and will deliver a substantial boost to freight productivity in South Australia and the national freight network.
The ARTC will partner with Arrium Steel to deliver the upgrade, substantially boosting demand for steel production at the Whyalla facility.
