Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Asciano’s rail subsidiary, Pacific National, has completed the purchase of 327 hectares of freehold land in the Parkes Multi Modal Transport Hub for the development of an intermodal freight terminal.
The freehold land has concept plans already approved by the NSW Minister of Planning for the development of an intermodal freight terminal and container storage and warehousing.
The site has sufficient land to accomodate the rail terminal and co-location of a container storage centre as well as national logistics and distribution facilities.
‘We are delighted to receive this news and look forward to the development,’ Parkes Mayor Robert Wilson said.
The proposed terminal will increase their ability to double stack trains from Parkes to Perth originating out of Sydney and add capacity to handle additional rail freight volumes.
‘Located west of Parkes, the land sits right on the junction of the East-West interstate rail corridor and proposed Melbourne to Brisbane inland rail corridor,’ Asciano CEO Mark Rowsthorn said.
