Mount Murray loop extension completed


The $7.5 million dollar Mount Murray Loop extension has now been completed.

The project involved extending the existing 764 metre rail loop by another 300 metres.

This is expected to boost productivity on the Moss Vale to Unanderra line, which is an important link for farmers and miners delivering their goods to Port Kembla.

Around 140 people have been directly or indirectly during the life of the project.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman says the project will also take more freight off our roads.
