Inland Rail will complete the backbone of the national rail freight network between Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
It will deliver freight out of the congested Sydney network, saving approximately 10 hours of travelling time.
Trains travelling on this new, more direct route will travel at up to 115km/h and use significantly less fuel.
The 1700km route leverages the earlier investment in the Australian rail freight network following the existing interstate line from Melbourne to Illabo. It then uses a combination of capacity improvements, major track upgrades and new track via Parkes, Moree, North Star, Oakey, Toowoomba, Gatton and Rosewood.
