New South Wales News Light rail construction in Hunter Street, Newcastle was reaching an advanced stage when photographed by Peter Sansom on Thursday 27 December 2017. GrainCorp opens upgraded Cunningar site GrainCorp officially unveiled its upgraded grain receival site at Cunningar near Harden in southern New South Wales on Tuesday 19 December. The site has undergone a $8.1 million upgrade jointly funded by the Australian Government, the local community, Hilltops Council and GrainCorp (see July 2017 RD, page 41). Nigel Lotz, General Manager of Operations for GrainCorp said: “The Cunningar site project has set the benchmark of how public, private and growers can come together to deliver a fantastic outcome for the whole community. The broader Harden area is one of the most reliable cropping regions in Australia so having access to a modern, efficient supply chain is vital for growers to realise their potential”. Mr Lotz said that GrainCorp has been able to deliver one of the most efficient grain receival sites in Australia, with record turnaround GOULBURN RAIL HERITAGE CENTRE times, rail loading and cycle times. This results in better prices for local growers and keeps Australian grain globally competitive. “The more efficient site will move thousands of tonnes back to rail, removing 4,000 truck journeys from local roads reducing wear and tear and increasing safety for local communities,” Mr Lotz said. “I would like to congratulate our GrainCorp project team and our principal contractors Martinus Rail and Bellinghams, for delivering the project safely. This is an exceptionally complicated development and your teams have done an outstanding job”. GrainCorp also thanked the Australian Government for their support through the National Stronger Regions Fund, Hilltops Council and local growers for their financial contribution. “Without their support, this project would not have been possible,” Mr Lotz said. 12 Braidwood Road, Goulburn, NSW Open 10:00am–3:30pm daily (except Mondays, Christmas Day, Boxing Day & Good Friday) Ph: (02) 4822 1210 Fax: (02) 4823 5762 Email: glrps@bigpond.com.au FEBRUARY 2018 11
