Rail Industry

The Rail industry is a fundamental part of the Australian economy providing mobility to millions of passengers and vital freight services across the country.

 

The industry employs over 50,000 people across private and public operators, passenger and freight operators, track owners and managers, manufacturers, infrastructure maintenance and suppliers. The industry underpins Australian business, as it carries people and commodities on over 33,000 km of track across the country and it is expanding at a rapid rate.

 

Rail IRC Chair Carol Hedrick:
“There are going to be significant changes in the rail industry over the next 10 years and the introduction of new technologies will change the way we do things. The rail industry has many different career paths, anything from protection officers, to track workers, network controllers and can be a lifetime career, it’s quite incredible what we have”
