been on the cards for some time hasnt it. Article dosnt suggest funding is there for it unfortunatly either. Will be great if it happens however.

unless they are on about soaly bulk cargo, they will need to tweek rail a bit one would imagine. not much space for a container facility.

"Sulla1"


All the extra imports of cars after Ford stop manufacturing?
Or maybe a "build it and they'll come" mentality?

Funding??
"City of Greater Geelong councillors will vote on Tuesday night on a number of recommendations, including writing to both the federal and state governments seeking funding to increase investment in the port and secure future jobs in Geelong."
So that reads UNFUNDED

At least the expanded Port Geelong already has standard gauge and interstate connections, which could be improved with more crossing loops, passing lanes, and even duplication.
