As it stretches and weaves across the lower half of WA, our rail freight network passes through nature reserves, pastoral land, Aboriginal and European heritage sites and areas of geological significance.

To protect these areas, we have a system in place to ensure we monitor, manage and reduce our impact. And we comply with sound environmental ethics and practices in everything we do.

Our Environmental Management System covers a wide range of measures and seeks to:

  • preserve significant flora and fauna
  • rehabilitate around our rail corridor
  • control unwanted vegetation
  • minimise the impacts of land degradation and hazardous materials
  • prevent pollution; and
  • manage natural resources.

Beyond this, our commitment to the environment is shown through solid action. We identify the risks and challenges of our construction and maintenance activities and act swiftly to manage them.

Part of that means working with local governments and State Governments, including the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation & Attractions, Department of Water & Environmental Regulation, and Department of Planning, Lands & Heritage to better understand how best to act and reduce our impacts.

At Arc Infrastructure we want to continually improve our environmental performance and exceed regulatory compliance to protect the environment in and around our rail network.
