We share technical knowledge for people working in rail infrastructure systems

Welcome to the Permanent Way Institution of New South Wales

The Institution was formed in 1884 in England by a group of dedicated railway people, who felt the need for an avenue for exchange of track design, construction and maintenance. The New South Wales Section was formed in 1974, not only to benefit from those who had gone before, but also to add to the development of still more efficient rail transportation in the years ahead.
