The Australian Rail Transport Corporation (ARTC) predicts a $560 million upgrade to rail lines between Sydney and Melbourne will reduce truck journeys by 300,000 between the two cities each year.
The ARTC and the Australian Rail Consortium (ARC) have joined forces in an effort to capture an extra 20 per cent of the freight market between the two cities.
The upgrades will see new passing lanes and about 220 kilometres of new lines constructed in the next three years.
ARTC spokesman David Marchant says the upgrades will reduce transit time and increase freight capacity.
"This is a significant improvement from 13 hours down to 10-and-a-half-hours for large super freighter," he said.
"That transit time, 10-and-a-half-hours from the middle of Melbourne to the middle of Sydney, is a very significant improvement."
