Australia will soon have its first national rail safety investigator after legislation cleared parliament.
Draft laws, introduced by Transport Minister Anthony Albanese in June, aim to cut red-tape as part of the government's plan to nationalise maritime, rail and heavy vehicle safety rules by 2013.
Under the measures, which passed the upper house of parliament on Thursday, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau will investigate safety incidents on all metropolitan passenger and freight rail networks.
Nationals Senate leader Barnaby Joyce said the reforms would reduce the regulatory burden on businesses, consolidate 23 existing regulators into three and boost national income by up to $30 billion over the next 20 years.
The Transport Safety Investigation Amendment Bill 2012 now awaits royal assent.
