Patrick PortRail Melbourne is a new rail terminal at the Port of Melbourne designed to support the efficient movement of freight to and from the Port on rail. The new rail terminal has been constructed as a key component of the Port of Melbourne Port Rail Transformation Project and is scheduled to be operational in 2023. The new facility provides a direct interface with Patrick Terminals – Melbourne, supporting the efficient movement of freight to and from the quayline to the rail terminal.
The PortRail terminal consists of two dual gauge sidings of 600 metres. The terminal will be a key node in the Melbourne freight network aiming to reduce truck movements and congestion in metropolitan Melbourne and connect the port with intermodal facilities on the urban fringe.
- Two rail sidings with the ability to handle 600m long trains
- Direct interface to the Patrick Terminals – Melbourne
- Supports the modal shift to freight on rail
