Community & Partners
TAHE was established as a state-owned corporation on 1 July 2020, the owner of an extensive portfolio of railway assets, networks and infrastructure across NSW.
We’re committed to delivering commercial, place-making, sustainable and socially responsible outcomes for the people of NSW, while enhancing our transport systems safety, connectivity and reliability.
TAHE brings a new opportunity in the strategic management of our heavy rail infrastructure. TAHE is uniquely placed to unlock the value of our commercial assets, while creating long term value.
Our legislated objectives guide our approach to these activities:
- Undertake activities in a safe and reliable manner
- Support the interests of communities through the exercise of social responsibility
- Contribute to sustainable outcomes
- Promote regional development
- Be a successful, commercial business
TAHE owns an extensive asset portfolio of tracks, trains, stations, retail spaces and significant land holdings around stations within the Sydney Metropolitan area and regional NSW.
Many TAHE projects will create greater network efficiency, financial sustainability and network resilience which will underpin reliable delivery of public transport and freight services into the future.
Initiatives in the metropolitan network such as Digital Systems will harness technology and innovation.
Other projects, such as Redfern North Eveleigh Precinct renewal and Central Station development will revitalise significant areas creating accessible and vibrant mixed-use activity around key transport nodes.
TAHE is playing a key role in a number of projects to deliver new employment, residential and place-making opportunities for the people of NSW.
Transport Asset Holding Entity has been given a very specific role in the NSW rail system. The entity has been established as a strategic asset manager with a focus on holding, establishing, financing, acquiring, and developing transport assets that maximise value for the community and shareholders.
A number of asset custodian and delegated asset steward organisations undertake end to end management of assets on TAHE’s behalf. These organisations are responsible for developing the maintenance, refurbishment, and replacement strategies for the assets to balance risks, performance, and costs.
We have an un-compromising commitment to safety. Working with our rail partners who are responsible for the safe operation and maintenance of our assets, we provide assurance that our assets are being managed and delivered in a safe and reliable manner.
The operation and management of passenger train services is the responsibility of Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink.
The operation and maintenance of passenger facilities like train stations and other passenger assets is the responsibility of Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink. UGL and ARTC operate and manage our freight network and infrastructure.
Our dedicated team is actively reviewing our portfolio to identify opportunities to deliver on our commercial, sustainable and place-making objectives.
We are open to ideas so if you have one for our sites, please get in touch.
TAHE owns a number of retail spaces in metropolitan and regional areas across NSW. We have a number of retail assets available for leasing around the rail network. Find out more about leasing opportunities
