Bridge will link road, rail and port

<p>A $4.5m bridge will be built at Barnes Road in North Altona to help get trucks off local roads and improve road and rail links to the port of Melbourne.</p> <p>Once the bridge is built, freight can be railed close to the port before being moved on a purpose-built road for the final leg of the journey.</p> <p>The Victorian Government will contribute $1.5m to the project, with the rest coming from industry and Hobsons Bay Council.</p> <p>A Dynon hub masterplan is also being developed to improve transport links. </p> <p>The 10-year blueprint will be presented to the government within three months.</p> <p>These initiatives were announced at Ports Agenda 2002 last week.</p> <br />
