Queensland Rail is a statutory authority which operates through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Queensland Rail Limited.
Queensland Rail operates in a highly competitive commercial environment. However, Queensland Rail demonstrates its commitment to open government and transparency by proactively providing access to information wherever it is in the public interest to do so.
At times, the public interest is best served by maintaining confidentiality on information that has high commercial value. Although this is the case, Queensland Rail information, including confidential information, is subject to audit and Government scrutiny.
Queensland Rail releases information through a Publication Scheme where information is made available according to the following guidelines:
Administrative Access Arrangements
Queensland Rail routinely releases information to the public under various administrative arrangements. These arrangements may be made on an ad hoc basis or via an already established process.
In response to recommendation 31 of the Strachan Commission of Inquiry Report we are committed to ongoing reviews of our administrative access processes and we will continue to ‘push’ information out into the public domain where it is in the public interest. In line with our commitment to providing world class customer service through proactivity and innovation, we now make it easier for you to access information through our administrative access schemes.
