ARTC currently has responsibility for the management of over 8,500 route kilometres of standard gauge interstate track in South Australia, Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales. The company is responsible for delivering the Melbourne to Brisbane Inland Rail project.

Over these corridors, ARTC is responsible for: • selling access to train operators • the development of new business • capital investment in the corridors • management of the network • the management of infrastructure maintenance
