Provided support to the AustralAsia Railway Corporation during the year, including financial support for the operations of the Corporation, shared 50 per cent with the South Australian Government. Promoted the AustralAsia Railway through marketing and public awareness of the project throughout the year. This included presenting a number of show displays and providing detailed information both electronically and through the media. OUTLOOK Finalise all work relating to Northern Territory obligations for occupational crossings and fencing along the 1420 kilometre corridor.
