Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Widgelli Rail Hub will not only be a rail siding for loading trains. It will have a business park component for high quality warehousing and value adding industries. It will focus on clean industries and will not house bulk commodities that can generate dust and odours.
It will also offer a rail freight short line service known as Regional Connect. This concept is new to Australia but has been behind the revival of rail freight in the US. Short lines “hub” freight to the main lines where passing rail freight services collect the wagons for on-delivery to their destinations.
As Griffith is on two spur lines that join the main line at Junee and Cootamundra, it means that freight can be collected at Widgelli and other locations along the spur lines and hubbed to either Junee or Cootamundra or other pick up points. This opens up options for more frequent services to a range of destinations both north and south.
Widgelli Rail Hub will be the home of Regional Connect. It will be the first truly regional rail service offered in Australia. A Business Park of seventy hectares, situated adjacent the rail hub is available for a variety of uses.
The Widgelli Business Park provides opportunities for businesses to set up warehousing and manufacturing facilities to allow for a fully integrated operation with ready access to the container handling and rail transport facilities. Pre-lease design & construct packages are available immediately along with innovative “third party” packaging and logistics solutions.
