About Us

  • National Trunk Rail Pty Ltd (NTR) is a private sector initiative
    established to promote and develop Australia’s most significant
    supply chain – an inland rail line from Melbourne to Brisbane.

    Our team has decades of rail, financial and construction expertise
    in the public and private sectors.

    NTR has been pursuing a 21st century solution to Australia’s
    growing freight demand since 2012, building on a concept which
    had its genesis more than 20 years ago.

  • NTR acknowledges that solving the freight challenge – where land
    freight is expected to double over the next 20 years and triple by
    2050 – is critical to Australia.

    But Australia’s ability to harness the enormous trade and investment
    opportunities ahead of us, including through ASEAN Free Trade Agreements, is limited by our 19th century infrastructure and supply chains.

    A world-class, Melbourne to Brisbane trunk rail line is the solution.
