The Australian and Victorian Governments, as well as the Australasian Railway Association on behalf of rail industry leaders, have come together to sign the historic Memorandum of Cooperation to address longstanding coordination issues between Australia's rail networks.
The agreement will improve rail’s competitiveness, boost national productivity and improve connections between cities, regions and ports.
The first signatories to the Memorandum of Cooperation include Australia’s Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, Catherine King, Victorian Deputy Premier, Jacinta Allan, and the chair of the Australasian Railway Association, Danny Broad.
Further signings between Australian transport ministers and industry builders, operators, and manufacturers are being progressed across the country to maximise the opportunities from the investments to improve rail connections.
