Fixing Country Rail

Fixing Country Rail provides funding to rail infrastructure enhancement projects that eliminate connectivity constraints on the NSW regional rail network. It is designed to complement the Fixing Country Roads program to build an efficient freight transport network in regional NSW and reduce the cost to market for businesses.

Projects funded under this program could include sidings, passing loops, the reopening of non-operational sections and network enhancements that allow the use of faster, longer and heavier trains.
