Tasmanian Freight Revitalisation Network Renewal

Tasmania will soon enjoy the benefits of the Tasmanian Freight Rail Revitalisation - Network and the Tasmanian Freight Rail Revitalisation- Off-Network upgrades

Our local freight operators are set to benefit from the Tasmanian Freight Rail Revitalisation upgrade, which involves re-sleepering, re-railing and other track upgrade works on Tasmania’s major rail freight corridors.Upgrades to the Melba, Fingal and Derwent Valley Rail Lines will improve transport linkages for freight customers on the Western and South Lines and are expected to be completed by mid-2024.

These upgrades will reduce operational costs of freight movements, provide additional rail capacity, improve reliability and reduce transit times.

This project is part of the Australian Government’s $110 billion investment in transport infrastructure across Australia. For more information about Building Our Future and projects near you, visit www.buildingourfuture.gov.au.
