To be attributed to an ARTC representative:
“Inland Rail is a major piece of national infrastructure, delivering critical enhanced freight rail capacity between Melbourne and Brisbane, enabling the faster and safer transportation of goods.
“The successful delivery of a highly complex program of works like Inland Rail requires close liaison and effective engagement with communities and extensive co-operation with multiple departments and agencies at both Commonwealth and state level.
“ARTC welcomes this opportunity to work with Dr Kerry Schott AO, the Independent Reviewer, to ensure Inland Rail is a modern freight network that better connects the country.
“ARTC is also committed to creating real benefits for the broader regional community along the Inland Rail route.
“While this independent Review is under way our work of designing and building Inland Rail will continue, supporting businesses and jobs, and enabling communities and local governments to engage on this important initiative.”
