It is understood SCT Logistics plans to create a new rail-road connection at the Logic logistics hub.

 

A plan to build a new intermodal freight terminal outside of Wodonga in Victoria looks to be moving ahead.

Wodonga Council has announced its intention to sell a parcel of land to Blanalko, which is the strategic real estate arm of SCT Logistics.

The site is part of the council-owned Logic business park development.

The land parcel includes space for a standard warehouse, as well as a 1.5km siding along the existing north eastern railway line.

Under local government rules, the council is required to seek public feedback on the proposed sale before any transaction is finalised.

That notice was placed in local newspaper the Border Mail on December 5.

Interested parties have until January 16 to lodge a submission with the council.

A special meeting to debate the plan has been scheduled for January 19.

The proposed deal does not include an advertised price, indicating only that the land will be sold for at or above valuation.

It does require that the purchasing party use the land specifically for a rail terminal in line with the relevant planning permit.
