Real progress in rail R&D

Since its formation in 2014, the Rail Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) has worked closely with leading proponents of the Australian rail industry to increase research and development (R&D) and innovation in the rail sector. A strong, efficient and modern rail industry is an important element of Australia’s transport infrastructure future. With our vast geography and distance from the sites of resource production to ports, coupled with high levels of urban congestion in our growing cities, Australia’s future prosperity and productivity is dependent on a strong rail industry sector. The Rail Manufacturing CRC believes that the Australian rail manufacturing sector can take advantage of the opportunities afforded by a strong pipeline of investment to modernise and increase their competitiveness during this period of likely rail transport expansion.
