Port Rail Shuttles For Melbourne At Last

 
  Carnot Minister for Railways

“Our 30 year Development Strategy...”.

Nuf said - your grandchildren might witness a shuttle.
I've seen an ad pop up on facebook in regarding a small road road closure around Lyndhurst/Lynbrook, due to something getting built there nearish the warehouses there. Take it as you will.

Found it!

This is good news.  Do we have a clear view on what the track configuration might look like and how many roads will be provided?

Really proud of Salta sticking to their guns and forcing an outcome with the government.



What will now happen on their altona location?

Worth noting that Qube's Dandenong cement train has been hauling a few containers lately.  Is this a nascent port-rail shuttle operation?

Passing Dynon last weekend and looing into the north yard there were cement tanktainers stacked 3 high must have been 40 at least in and that was not including what was on the train.

The observation on Dandenong is interesting.

Pretty much, they're from industries in the area who want to use a port shuttle sort of train.
