Interstate Network Possessions Management

The management and approval of track possessions on the Interstate Network is a collaborative process between Operations, Asset Management, Rail Operators, and other stakeholders to achieve maximum track access time without severely impacting train movements.

External parties wanting to conduct activities within the rail corridor or want to conduct activities adjacent to the rail corridor that has a potential to impact the rail corridor should contact the relevant ARTC Corridor Possessions person, prior to the works commencing.
