The UK and Australian rail industries have often worked together in partnership. In March 2019, the UK’s Railway Industry Association (RIA) and the Australasian Railway Association (ARA) announced a new partnership at a reception hosted by the British Consul-General in Australia, as part of a UK rail trade delegation visit of 12 UK companies to the region. The new partnership will help cement the already positive relationship we have with the Australasian rail industry, maximising the potential of both industries and our respective member companies.

Both countries have much to offer the global rail market and RIA members also list Australia as a priority market.

With Australia’s increasing population and economic growth, we have seen Australia’s State and Federal Governments announcing high levels of spend on infrastructure and rail projects over the next decade, as they understand the power of the sector to move goods and people quickly and efficiently in a sustainable manner, while helping to cut congestion on the roads.

RIA, along with a number of companies from the UK rail sector, has been forming UK Pavilions at AusRail Plus exhibitions over the past few years and are pleased to exhibit in Sydney again this December.

We would be delighted to welcome any visitors to the UK Pavilion at Ausrail Plus 2019, stand number 95.
