Rail hub for Gheringhap? This sign has recently been erected near Buchter Rd.
The sign notes "duel gauge". Perhaps a hint the prospective buyer will be fighting locals if they want the land rezoned? Wink

The land rezoning process to Industrial has been in process for over five years for Gheringhap only, it's a done deal if the owners want to sell their land to Industry.
This is also the block of land that was reported to have been sold to a Korean company that had plans to build an ethanol plant on it, that may have fell through but it is still reported on their website.

This might mean the Ethanol Plant for Gheringhap is not going to proceed or the owners have more than 1 interested party so therefore they intend to offer the land up on a competitive tendering basis.

There's a large block for sale on the south-western side of the highway overpass, was it the proposed ethanol site?. It's already been rezoned for industrial use. details at http://www.realcommercial.com.au/property-land+development-vic-gheringhap-501599377

GoG has already said that the first site posted was the proposed ethanol site.

The thread title is a tad miss-leading as there is NO proposal for a terminal, just a zealous real estate agent that is trying to sell the land by suggesting possible uses

News is the intermodal terminal was leaked on Railpage approximately 12 months ago.

There are two projects the intermodal terminal and the ethanol plant.

I know the gentleman that owns this block of land he often calls round to tell me what is happening. He is the person who told me that the first block of land mentioned in this thread was the block sold for the Ethanol plant. He has been trying to sell his block for over 20 years with big oppositions from the Golden Plains Shire who would not allow him to subdivide it. Now the land is classed as Industrial he no longer needs to Subdivide it. Any Industry that come to Gheringhap will have to push for the proposed NBN Wi - Fi  tower that is to be built at Batesford because I am 8 K's from the telephone exchange and my max download speed with Telstra's ADSL is 1.5mbps and a number of properties in the area have had their broadband taken off them for complaining about the poor infrastructure and service.

Before he put this block of land up for sale he had a survey done to see if it could have railway access and the result of the survey was YES the bridge could be pinned for a extra track to run onto the block of land.

A number of years ago there was talk of an Intermodal depot to be built at Gheringhap but that fell by the wayside in favour of it being said it would be built by the side of railway close to Avalon.

The site is perfect for an intermodal terminal or other road, rail use and I would argue is being advertised or such. If GoG says the ethanol plant is on the other side of the highway then are we safe to assume this is still going ahead?

The plan for intermodal at Ghap was scrapped years ago for a site proposed between Lara and Little River. The two blocks of land for sale with railway frontage at Ghap are showing no interest to buyers.
A Korean company bought the block on the up side of Ghap with intentions of building a Ethanol Plant which fell through. They recently tried to sell the land as a hobby farm but with no interest.
There is also no interest shown with the block on the down side of the bridge.
