Murray Basin Rail Project

On 9 December 2016, Infrastructure Australia positively assessed the Murray Basin Rail Project as a Priority Project on the Infrastructure Priority List.

The project had previously been listed as a Priority Initiative by Infrastructure Australia. It seeks to address a long term underspend on maintenance, and subsequent declines in service. The project will see standardisation of the existing broad gauge rail network, and axle load upgrades to build the capability of the line.
