Inland Rail


Yarpa is partnering with the team at Inland Rail to increase Aboriginal participation and ensure Aboriginal communities along the alignment are active contributors to Australia’s largest freight rail project.

Delivered by ARTC, Inland Rail is a once-in-a-generation project that will enhance supply chains and complete the backbone of the national freight network by providing a transit time of 24 hours or less for freight trains between Melbourne and Brisbane, via regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Comprising 13 individual projects and spanning more than 1,700 km, Inland Rail is the largest freight rail infrastructure project in Australia and one of the most significant infrastructure projects in the world.

On a large and complex project like Inland Rail, there will be opportunities for a wide range of contractors and suppliers.  The contracting and delivery model employed by ARTC means we will be engaging directly with a number of major contractors, who, in turn, will do business with suppliers and subcontractors to deliver a variety of goods, services and works - completing the supply chain for delivery of Inland Rail.

Inland Rail encourages its major contractors and their subcontractors to promote details of supply opportunities on the ICN Gateway. If you’re interested in becoming a supplier to one of Inland Rail’s contractors, visit the ICN Gateway to create a company profile or to register interest.
