The planning, approval and management of track possessions on the Interstate Network is a collaborative process between Operations, Asset Management and other stakeholders to achieve maximum track access time without severely impacting planned train movements.
The Interstate Possessions Team communicate with all affected stakeholders to plan train alterations and approve track access requests. The Interstate Possessions Team updates the Interstate Possessions Calendar on a monthly basis. The calendar details all approved and proposed track possession requests.
Track possession applications are subject to minimum application periods and various other factors before approval is given to conduct the works. The Interstate Possessions Team will only accept track access applications from nominated ARTC Personnel. External Parties should contact their nominated ARTC contact person, or visit our ‘Contact Us’ page for more information.
