Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A Narromine based company has opened its first grain receival site in 30 years, at Coonamble.
The owner David Ringland says grains including wheat, barley, lupins, chickpeas and faba beans will be packed for export at the Agrigrain site, so they do not have to be repackaged at a Sydney port.
"Most of the grain that we sell in containers we sell on a direct commodities trading basis," he said.
"We're selling it to normally an Australian based exporter who takes ownership of the grains that we've packed into containers at the port and trans-ships them on to the end users overseas."
Mr Ringland says the $30 million upgrade of the rail line from Dubbo to Coonamble has allowed the development to proceed.
He says it has already received about 1,500 tonnes of faba beans.
"What we've built is the opportunity to receive substantial amounts of grain," he said.
"At harvest this year we have enough storage to receive between 50 and 60,000 tonnes and our output intention on a 12 month period is somewhere between 150 and 200,000 tonnes."
The receival site opened this week.
