THE Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre has been deemed unviable after an agreement was signed to develop the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal yesterday.

The Federal Government announced the agreement will see Sydney Intermodal Terminal Alliance develop and operate the intermodal by 2017.

The Moorebank area is industrial land otherwise how would the terminal receive approval.  Sounds like a case of the art gallery being in the wrong place.

The Liverpool Council wants to "gentrify" the area around the Georges River adjacent to the city.

The Casula Powerhouse is barely ten metres from the existing SSFL and the main southern line.

How can a freight terminal on the other side of the river hundreds of metres away have a greater effect on this facility than the trains that have been running past it since it was built as a power station?

Presumably if they are successful in stopping the Moorebank Terminal, they will campaign for the Main Southern Line to be relocated, maybe into a tunnel to improve the amenity for this facility...
