How the proposed new freight terminal will take trucks off busy Melbourne roads
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.
