Work has begun on Toll’s $24 Million intermodal freight terminal at the Brighton Transport Hub, Tasmania, reaffirming the group’s commitment to Tasmania.
Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings and Brighton Mayor Tony Foster joined Toll Tasmania’s General Manager Tony Stewart to turn the first sod on the construction of the Toll facility, the first to be built at the new transport hub.
“Toll’s investment in this facility underpins our commitment to Tasmania, in particular Hobart and the southern regional businesses,” Mr Steward said.
“Once built, the new facility will enable us to move operations from our three current Hobart sites into the one purpose-built site, and it will reduce the amount of traffic going in and out of central Hobart”
The 16,000 square meter facility will handle general and refrigerated freight, offer warehousing and distribution services, and provide container storage for both domestic and international shipping requirements. A freight haulage agreement will also allow us to increase the amount of freight we carry by rail.
Construction on the site is expected to be completed mid-2014.
