Accessing our track

Queensland Rail manages an open access, multi-user rail network, providing more than 6500 kilometres of track throughout Queensland (Queensland Rail does not manage the Central Queensland coal network – this is managed by Aurizon).

Our role is to work with train operators and customers to provide cost effective, supply chain solutions for moving bulk and general/containerised freight. We also provide access for passenger trains including heritage train operators. 

Queensland Rail has an access undertaking which provides the rules for third party access to its network to ensure that train operators and end customers are provided services in fair and equitable system.

Queensland Rail is focused on working with its existing and new customers to better understand their business and its unique requirements to achieve their transport goals.
