Inland Rail Interface Improvement Program

Inland Rail Interface Improvement Program

Expressions of Interest for the Australian Government’s Inland Rail Interface Improvement Program opened on 18 August 2020 and closes on 18 September 2020.

The Australian Government has committed $44 million to the Inland Rail Interface Improvement Program to assist in the development of project ideas that have the potential to boost the benefits that flow from Inland Rail. Individuals, businesses, organisations and governments with ideas on how to make the most of Inland Rail through improved connections or enhanced supply chain productivity are invited to submit their project proposals.

Through this program, eligible project proponents are matched with specialist business advisors to develop their ideas and assess costs and benefits through feasibility studies and strategic business cases. Advisors are appointed and paid by the program and work with proponents to build a case for investment, which follows best practice infrastructure investment planning processes.

An online information session, facilitated by the Infrastructure Department, was held on 19 August. For further information about the Interface Improvement Program and how to submit a proposal, interested members of the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia and potential proponents can visit https://www.InlandRail.gov.au/IIP
