Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The Australian Rail Track Corporation has welcomed the opening of a 3.5-kilometre section of rail line to the Broadbent Grain facility in Moree.
The upgraded section of rail connects with the ARTC’s network in Moree.
Jonathan Vandervoort, ARTC’s executive general manager for the Hunter Valley, said it was good to see new rail infrastructure on the back of a massive grain season.
Vandervoort noted the Port of Newcastle had seen a threefold increase in tonnage and train numbers during the latest harvest, compared to the same time last year.
He said bulk rail loading capabilities in Moree enable a 48-hour cycle to Newcastle, making it one of the most efficient rail loading operations in the Moree region.
“With increased train axle loads now available between the Port and Moree on ARTC’s network, the new connection to Broadbent Grain’s site means heavier, more efficient trains can now run out of the facility,” Vandervoort said.
“That lowers transport costs and puts dollars back in farmer’s pockets.”
