SA: Genessee & Wyoming bring track maintenance in-house

Outsourcing might be all the rage in the rail industry, but one company at least is going the other way – with Genessee & Wyoming Australia (GWA) in South Australia bringing track maintenance in-house.


SA/NT Branch Secretary Darren Phillips said a transmission of business agreement had been signed between GWA and the former contractor, Transfield.

“Genessee & Wyoming has already brought a number of operations back in-house to build up its internal capacity,” Darren said.

GWA owns almost 5,000km of rail track in South Australian and the Northern Territory, including the Tarcoola-Darwin railway.
