Currently, there is no terminal in Melbourne that is capable of accommodating the Inland Rail service offering of double-stacked 1,800-metre trains. Government involvement will ensure that an intermodal terminal with sufficient capacity to accommodate such trains is available to support Inland Rail in Melbourne from the commencement of services in the mid-2020s.
The Australian and Victorian governments are currently jointly undertaking a detailed business case to consider the development of an intermodal terminal in Melbourne capable of supporting Inland Rail. The Victorian Government, through the 2018-19 Victorian State Budget and Victorian Freight Plan: Delivering the Goods 2018, that it is considering intermodal terminals at two potential sites for the intermodal terminal: one at Truganina, west of Melbourne (referred to as the Western Interstate Freight Terminal), and the other at Beveridge, north of Melbourne (referred to as the Beveridge Interstate Freight Terminal). The business case will consider the terminal location as well as matters including market access/operating models, financing options and value capture opportunities and is expected to be completed later this year.
Funding for this project has been allocated under the Major Project Business Case Fund.
The project will develop a joint business case that will help determine the preferred delivery option for an intermodal terminal in Melbourne to support Inland Rail.
Government involvement will ensure that intermodal terminals, with sufficient capacity to accommodate double-stacked 1,800-metre trains, are available to support Inland Rail in Melbourne from the commencement of services.
The Australian Government will contribute up to 50 per cent, capped at $10 million, for the joint business case.
The Business Case will be delivered between 2019 and late 2020.
