Freight milestone sees TasRail on track

TasRail has achieved a new benchmark, with the total number of tonnes freighted across Tasmania’s rail network exceeding three million in 2016/17.

TasRail CEO Damien White said three million tonnes of freight on rail equated to at least 140,000 less heavy vehicle movements on our roads and 55,000 less tonnes of harmful emissions into our environment.

Powering towards the future

Tasmania will have the lowest regulated power prices in the country within five years as the government flicks the switch on a new Tasmania First Policy.

New Energy Minister Guy Barnett has bitten the bullet and announced the new measure to ensure power costs for business and consumers is kept under control.
