The Department of Transport and Main Roads invites offers from professional services providers to undertake a preliminary design planning study for a scalable alternative rail loading facility at Richmond.
The objective of this study is to prepare a preliminary planning study report for an alternate cattle rail loading facility at Richmond, which can be expanded in future to accommodate the loading of other freight originating from the Region, including containerised freight. RSC and TMR will actively engage with the consultant throughout the entirety of the study.
The tender comes on the back of a recent series of contract renewals for Aurizon for cattle haulage across Queensland. This tender suggests an increase in cattle traffic will require new loading facilities.
Aurizon has gathered together around 150 PCZY and PCUY container wagons in yards at Ayr and Cairns in the last six months for the conversion to cattle traffic, these wagons may also allow 100km/h running for the cattle trains too (up from 80km/h).
