Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics Hub open for business

The multimillion dollar Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics (RiFL) Hub, a core feature of the Wagga Wagga Special Activation Precinct, officially opened today and is set to increase freight capacity and economic growth for the region.

Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Dallas Tout, Minister for Regional Transport and Roads The Hon Sam Farraway and Visy Logistics Country Manager Mr Lee Schmelich officially declared the rail and intermodal facility open on Thursday (1 December).

The RIFL Hub includes a 4.6 kilometre rail master siding connecting to the main southern railway, funded by the NSW Government Fixing Country Rail program and the intermodal terminal, co-funded by Wagga Wagga City Council and Visy Logistics.

The RiFL Hub will deliver significant benefits and strengthen the regional economy, creating opportunities for businesses looking to relocate from metropolitan areas and establish in regional NSW.
