The federal infrastructure minister is confident the Andrews Government will approve a multi-billion dollar intermodal freight terminal in Melbourne.

The government has pledged to pay at least $2 billion of the $4 billion cost.

The terminal would be built at either Truganina or Beveridge and would create a train link between the port and terminal.

“It will take trucks off busy metropolitan arterial roads,” deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack explained.

He said he had a “good relationship” with the Victorian government and was confident the finer details would be sorted.

“We’ll get this done,” Mr McCormack said.
