Toll Group will build a $20 million intermodal hub in Launceston, after the city’s council approved the development late last week.
TasRail CEO Damien White on August 22 welcomed the Launceston City Council’s approval of the project, saying Toll would be increasing its usage of Tasmania’s rail network.
He said the development showed the company’s growing confidence in freight rail in Tasmania.
“Since TasRail recommenced rail services to Toll’s Launceston facility in March 2012, more than 60,000 containers have moved through that facility on rail,” White said.
“This generates significant environmental, safety and business benefits to the Toll Group, its customers and the community.
“TasRail congratulates the Toll Group on their vision and commitment to the new transport hub and we look forward to working with Toll Group and the wider northern Tasmanian community on this much-needed economic boost for our region.”
