  2. 2. www.ara.net.au 6th largest rail network globally
  3. 3. www.ara.net.au Our annual customers... 930 million tonnes of freight 784 million customer journeys Our passenger and freight rail networks are at or exceeding capacity
  4. 4. www.ara.net.au Rail Industry: Size • Labour force: 44,210 people (+70,000 working in industries supporting rail) • Investment commitments in rollingstock and track $36 billion • Track 44,262 km in Australia • Over 2,276 locomotives and 32,000 wagons and carriages
  5. 5. www.ara.net.au Rail – on the national agenda • Massive investment in national network • Funding for urban projects – Cross City Tunnel, Melbourne Metro, electrification of Adelaide’ s urban network, Perth expansion Untangling freight and passenger networks • Access to ports • New train control technology (ATMS)(GSMR) • Light Rail emergence • Intermodals being developed • Level Crossings being upgraded • Inland Rail
  6. 6. www.ara.net.au Passengers That means an additional 80 million trips taken on our trains every week for the last 4 years! Urban Passenger Rail 767.68 million journeys in 2012 (11.8% increase since 2008) Non-Urban Passenger Rail 16.51 million journeys in 2012 (23.4% increase since 2008)

  12. 12. www.ara.net.au Agriculture and rail • The agricultural sector represents around 15% of the nations GDP • Transport is a critical component and rail can play a much larger role • The ARA is working with the NFF and others to promote improvements in the supply chain (e.g containerisation)
  13. 13. www.ara.net.au Freight from road to rail • Everyone says it – safe, environmental benefits, efficient • It is happening • It requires investment in infrastructure, processes and systems • It requires a re-think re investing in roads • It requires the rail industry to play its part
  14. 14. www.ara.net.au What do rail customers want? A Woolworths’ perspective 14 • Reliability (meet advertised availability times) • Right balance of service, cost and risk • customer- focused – understand customers’ needs • Understand its impact on customers’ supply chains • Need to be able to compete with road freight – productivity and flexibility • Logistics – efficient terminal access and locations • Price
  15. 15. www.ara.net.au Inland Rail $4.5 - $6 billion Required to complete
  16. 16. www.ara.net.au Inland Rail: TRANSFORMING the transport sector • Increase rail’s reliability and efficiency – double stacking, longer trains, – avoids Sydney bottlenecks – 2m tonnes of freight each year simply pass through Sydney – reduce travel times by up to 7hrs, train speeds of 110kmph • Increase rail’s market share – 80% on Brisbane - Melbourne – up to 25% for shorter legs • Eastern Corridor: Highest freight volume in Australia
  17. 17. www.ara.net.au Inland Rail – progress • $300m currently in Federal Labor budget from 2014/15 for pre construction works • Coalition have matched the funding with 3 key differences: – A 10 year timeline for construction from 2016-2026 – Additional funding from the QLD Government- so far committed $67 million for passing loops and tunnel expansions – Stated link to a Port of Brisbane proposed new corridor through Brisbane. • Critical element is the tunnel through the Toowoomba Range and route down to Port of Brisbane • Remainder of funding to be determined
  18. 18. www.ara.net.au Northern Sydney Freight Corridor • Planned to enhance the capacity and reliability of the freight rail network and passenger services between Newcastle and Sydney • Currently a major bottleneck for rail into and out of Sydney • $1.1 billion commitment in December 2011 – $840 million federal government – $214 million state government • ¼ of the sections of work completed so far • All scheduled for completion in 2016
  19. 19. www.ara.net.au Northern Sydney Freight Corridor • Will allow rail to be more competitive by: – Improving access through Northern Sydney to metropolitan network, Port Botany and container freight terminals – Improving reliability of passenger services into and out of the North of Sydney – Reduce restrictions to freight rail caused by priority of passenger services during peak times – Reduced transit times and increased reliability will making freight rail cheaper
  20. 20. www.ara.net.au HIGH SPEED RAIL Catching up with the world
  21. 21. www.ara.net.au The preferred route • 1,748 km • 4 city stations • 4 city-peripheral stations • 12 regional stations • 144km tunnels (8% of the line) or 29% of costs
  22. 22. www.ara.net.au Competitive travel times…
  23. 23. www.ara.net.au Freight Rail Further Actions • .Collection of Data across supply chains • A National Freight Plan • A National Inland Terminal Plan • Pricing regimes resolved
  24. 24. www.ara.net.au Rail into the future • Freight on Rail • More capacity in urban areas and on national network • Re-opening lines • Intermodals • High Speed Rail • New technology • Light rail
