Australasian rail events updates

After a national cabinet meeting on March 17, the Australian Commonwealth and state and territory governments announced restrictions on indoor gatherings of greater than 100 people from Wednesday, March 18. In New Zealand, the government has banned indoor gatherings of more than 100 people.

Although these bans do not apply to essential activities and schools, universities, workplaces, supermarkets, or public transport, they have impacted upon industry gatherings. As a resource for the industry, Rail Express will provide up-to-date information on rail industry events which have been impacted.
