Project to double Port of Savannah's rail freight capacity


The Georgia Ports Authority has broken ground on its US$126.7 million Mason Mega Rail Terminal, an expansion that will increase the Port of Savannah's rail lift capacity to one million containers a year, and open new markets from Memphis to Cincinnati, according to Shipping Gazette.
"Today is a great day for Georgia and the nation," said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal.
"Not only will this take trucks off the road and bring our products to market with greater efficiency, it will open a new corridor for American commerce to and from the Midwest," he said.
Said Georgia Ports Authority executive director Griff Lynch: "The Mason Mega Rail project will expand rail capacity by 100 per cent while reducing impact on the local community and throughout the supply chain."
When complete, Garden City Terminal will have a total of 180,000 feet of rail, 18 working tracks and the capability of building 10,000-foot unit trains on terminal.
This will allow GPA to bring all rail switching onto the terminal, avoiding the use of nearly two dozen rail crossings - including those on Highways 21 and 25 - for improved vehicle traffic flow.
