Stage set for congestion busting truck stop

28 August 2019

The Port of Townsville has unveiled a new plan to battle congestion caused by trucks queuing on roads leading into the port.

Local contractors will have an opportunity to tender later this year for a $4.5 million project to build a truck staging area that will cater for up to 25 triple road trains.

Member for Townsville Scott Stewart said the 1.5 hectare staging area on Benwell Road would improve safety and congestion around the Port.
