Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The Newcastle Port Corporation's decision to approve a $28 million grain export terminal at Carrington has been welcomed by some Carrington residents.
Local firm, Newcastle Agri Terminal says construction will start within weeks on the project, that will include five grain silos, along with rail, processing and shiploading facilities.
Some Carrington residents expressed concern about the cumulative effects of a second grain terminal in the suburb, particularly the impact of dust emissions.
But, Rob Pitman, who lives just a few hundred metres away from the Dyke 2 berth, says he has had briefings from Newcastle Agri Terminal and is confident pollution concerns have been addressed.
"With all grain, the dust exposure is always the highest risk, along with chemical spray," he said.
"This all did seem to have been looked into.
"So as a resident that's very close to the proposed terminal, I wouldn't be worried about that."
