Southern Sydney Freight Line

The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) undertook a program of works to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of rail freight services along the North-South Rail Corridor between Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane called the Southern Sydney Freight Line.

Previously, a major bottleneck in the rail freight network existed in southern Sydney, where freight trains were required to share existing rail lines with the Sydney metropolitan passenger services. To alleviate this bottleneck, ARTC constructed the Southern Sydney Freight Line (SSFL), a dedicated freight line for a distance of 36 kilometres in southern Sydney allowing passenger and freight services to operate independently.
