The City of Wagga Wagga and Genesee & Wyoming Australia (GWA) would like to reassure the community that both parties are actively pursuing the Riverina Intermodal Freight & Logistics (RIFL) Hub.

"GWA continues to invest in developing the business case for the proposed Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics (RiFL) Hub,” GWA Managing Director David Brown said.

“Both parties are satisfied with the progress including the work completed on design and the commercial / legal structures for the intermodal terminal.

“We look forward to making further announcements in the coming weeks."
