The Australian Government-owned National Intermodal Corporation (National Intermodal) has completed the transaction to acquire a 1,100-hectare site at Beveridge in Melbourne’s northern growth corridor.
National Intermodal is pleased to support the Australian Government’s endorsement of the recommendation made by the Dr Kerry Schott AO-led review into Inland Rail, that two new independent intermodal terminals connecting to Inland Rail will be delivered in Melbourne, one at Beveridge in Melbourne’s north and the other at Truganina in Melbourne’s west.
The Australian Government owned National Intermodal Corporation has exercised an option to acquire land at Beveridge, previously identified as suitable for the northern terminal connection to Inland Rail.
In another milestone for Australia’s largest intermodal precinct at Moorebank in Western Sydney, the new Interstate Rail Terminal’s container handling facilities are now under construction and on track for receiving its first interstate freight train in early 2024.
Construction has commenced on the new Interstate Intermodal Terminal at Moorebank Logistics Park in Sydney’s southwest – the first of four modern and interconnected terminals which will enhance Australia’s Supply Chain and drive freight efficiencies between Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
