Project overview


On 26 February 2024 the ACCC sent a request to ARTC to provide further information to support the assessment of the Proposed Undertaking. The period from 26 February to 18 March 2024 constitutes a specified period for a response to the notice under subsection 44ZZBCA(1) of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010.

On 20 December 2023 the ACCC published a consultation paper on ARTC's 2024 Interstate Access Undertaking application. We invited submissions on any aspect of the Proposed Undertaking. Submissions closed on Friday 23 February 2024. We received 7 public submissions.

On 12 December 2023 ARTC submitted the 2024 Interstate Access Undertaking application. This undertaking is intended to replace the 2008 undertaking, which is due to expire on 30 June 2024.

ARTC’s undertaking sets out the principles and processes under which ARTC, as an infrastructure provider of rail, will be obliged to provide access to businesses wishing to run trains on ARTC’s Interstate Rail Network.

All documents relating to this application will appear below during the course of the ACCC's assessment.
