Interstate Network Possessions Management

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.
