Inland Rail Summit 2018
Pullman King George Square, Brisbane City, Queensland, Australia

Event description

By 2030, more than 32 million tonnes of freight on our highways and railways between Melbourne and Brisbane will need to be moved and by 2050, freight volumes are forecast to grow more than double. The existing road infrastructure and rail line is already heavily congested and cannot accommodate highly efficient, long double-stacked trains due to restrictions on overhead wiring and tunnels. This then creates a burden on service reliability, transit times and freight availability.

The Australian Government’s $10 billion Inland Rail project is the integral solution to meeting this increased demand. Connecting capital cities, farms, mines and ports, the Inland Rail will deliver a road competitive service to improve Australia’s freight economy for the future.

With this is mind, IQPC is proud to host the Inland Rail Summit 2018 to address the challenges to be faced during the delivery of Australia’s Once-in-a- Generation rail infrastructure project. The program will explore the consultations, innovations and financial modelling that will influence the way we move freight around the country.
