The operations and maintenance contract for the NSW Country Regional Network (CRN) is due to expire on 30 June 2021. The current 10 year contract is held by John Holland Rail.

The CRN links areas of regional NSW with interstate and metropolitan rail systems. It consists of 2,386 kilometres of passenger and freight rail lines and 3,139 kilometres of non-operational lines.

Prior to commencing the formal procurement process, Transport for NSW undertook a market sounding process. This process will be used to inform future management and operation of the CRN. An industry briefing was held on 2 December, followed by face to face interviews with selected market sounding participants.

Pre-tender registrations were opened on 10 December 2019, followed by the Request for Tender on 18 December 2019. Tenders will be accepted until 18 May 2020.
