We start this issue with a new feature – a rail freight Talking Point. What do you make of this topic? Mark Townend respondd on Twitter to the story: “Doesn’t save drivers, higher rolling resistance of rubber tires & their residue shed into environment. Low volts reqd for use above public highways so transmission losses high, particularly when under peak load. Many substations. Put trailers & containers on rail for long haul.” Adam Stonefold was succinct: “Isn’t this a poorly timed April fool?” We couldn’t agree more.
In another busy issue, we look at ‘Bridging The Gap’, why rail is a strategic axis of Nestlé Waters and that ARTC Inland Rail opens track between Narrabri and Moree.
