Is traffic expected to pick up again this week now Xmas is over or will we need to wait until after new year ?

Still a lot of grain laying around.

Remember Geelong was closed to grain traffic for most of the previous week so trains ran to Portland instead.

If you take that and the proximity to Christmas into account it was a pretty good week through Gheringhap.

Traffic is still ups there via the Gheringhap Loop so perhaps with the opening of Geelong North we might see an increase in traffic.
