Did you know that Inland Rail is the largest freight rail project in Australia and one of the most significant infrastructure projects in the world? Spanning an impressive 1,700 km, it will connect Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland. The project will contribute to improving long-term sustainability of Australian infrastructure, as its completion will mean that freight can be delivered faster and more reliably to our growing population, and beyond to global markets. It will also lead to safer, less congested roads and fewer carbon emissions.
