Rail Freight Diversion
I have been asked to join a group of interested persons who wish to continue to pursue the diversion of the freight service through Truro rather than the Adelaide Hills and City. While I feel I may be wasting more time and effort I still believe this is the only realistic long term option for freight, especially as the desire to use freight services increases and trains are longer and double stacked. The current proposed grade separation only seeks to move freight more quickly through the City and is unlikely to improve the amenity of many people. I will keep you posted after I have been to my first meeting in October.
