Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A large mining operator is following the lead of some district quarries by opting for rail over road.
Heron Resources, which has been resurrecting the former Woodlawn Mine near Tarago, announced on Thursday that it would be shifting its ore concentrates by rail from Goulburn.
The move is estimated to eliminate 6000 annual B-double movements on the Hume Highway. The company believes it also reduces operating risks in moving the product
Chief executive Wayne Taylor said the company had signed up Crawford Freight Lines to move an eventual 120,000 tonnes of ore annually from Goulburn to Port Botany and Port Kembla for export.
“We think it’s a fantastic opportunity,” he said.
“They have a significant local presence and we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the infrastructure they have. It means we don’t have to bring trucks into Goulburn.”
