Inland Rail: A major enabler for manufacturing.

Generating opportunities for our regions and our economy, now and well into the future.

Inland Rail fast freight will transform how we move goods around Australia, and is set to become a major enabler for manufacturing. Albury Wodonga has two rail hubs (SCT and Ettamogah Rail Hub), direct access to the Hume Highway and is on the doorstep of the new Inland Rail project, creating the centre of logistics solutions.

SCT is a national, multi-modal transport and logistics company based at Logic Wodonga. Ettamogah Rail Hub provides access to competitive rail transport services and on-rail business park options, for both domestic and import/export freight based at the NEXUS Industrial Precinct.

Earlier this year, Albury Wodonga hosted the Inland Rail Conference, bringing together key players of Inland Rail to explore multiple facets of the project. This provided a valuable opportunity to showcase the region, including the unique characteristics of Albury Wodonga that make it an ideal investment destination for manufacturing, transport and logistics.

The Inland Rail project comprises of 13 individual sections of track spanning more than 1,700km, connecting Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. The fast freight net-work will better link producers to markets and create new opportunities for businesses, industries and regional communities.

Improvements to existing structures in the Melbourne to Albury section will provide increased clearances along the rail corridor. The enhancement works are required to accommodate double-stacked freight trains of 1,800 metres in length. Rail construction between Albury and Illabo to allow for double-stacked freight trains is progressing with recent Inland Rail visualisations of Albury sites released by the Australian Rail Track Corporation.
