Fremantle resident is pleased to see investments in rail freight facilities

IT was fantastic to see last week’s report about improvements made to the rail freight facilities that serve Fremantle Port.

I congratulate Ministers Nalder and Truss for this important investment in rail. If a paltry $65 million can make significant efficiency gains – just imagine what $1.6 billion could do to improve the efficiency and competitiveness of rail freight.

I encourage the State and Federal Transport Ministers to do a cost benefit analysis of both a road and rail upgrade scenarios before committing funds to the Freight Link project.
