A FOUR-year upgrade of the state’s freight rail network will start in July as improvements to the network continue.
TasRail has called for tenders for the supply and delivery of rail and sleepers as part of the $119.6 million Tasmanian Freight Rail Revitalisation Program.
The program is funded by the state and federal governments to upgrade “priority sections” of the rail network.
TasRail has called for the manufacture and delivery of 43,000 sleepers, 24,000 metres of 41kg rail and 28,000 metres of 50kg rail.
TasRail hauls more than three million tonnes of freight on rail each year.
According to TasRail, 68 per cent of freight moved between Hobart and Burnie is on rail, and 22 per cent of all freight in Tasmania is on rail.
