The Australian Government has put its money where its mouth is by pledging $8.4 billion for the Inland Rail project as part of an infrastructure spending spree in the federal budget. The balance of the cost of the $10b project will come from the private sector. If the rail industry wants to have existing standards amended to cut the frequency of human inspections of track, it will need to present a business case to the regulator detailing the merits of such a move. This was the message to given to participants in a full-day workshop at Monash University, Melbourne, on track maintenance standards and their relevance to modern railways, hosted by the university's Institute of Railway Technology. Sydney’s Central Station will receive a new underground concourse designed to give passengers better access to trains, buses, light rail and the soon-to-be-completed Sydney Metro. It is part of a plan to boost the station's ability to cater for an expected 66 per cent increase in daily customer demand.
