Australian Railway Seminar

Rail infrastructure projects are the backbone of long term passenger and freight transport for this nation.

However, the recent Federal Budget announcement of over $20 billion being invested in the rail industry over the next ten years, means that the industry must evolve in order to meet demand.

This session will provide an overview of the Australian rail industry as well as identify some of the key challenges and opportunities it is facing
