A new cement terminal is planned for Plymouth on a rail connected quay where access tracks are already in place. Plymouth does not want extra heavy lorries using the roads and it is environmentally unacceptable to increase such heavy loads onto a stressed system.The Cattedown terminal will bring huge tonnages of cement into silos by ship for onward transit. Can we all look forward to developments?

This topic was last discussed in July on the Plymouth Cattewater branch thread. Usual pros and cons but interesting comments from those in the know about the branch in general

Some of us are working towards such worthy aims, but it's really too early to say what the impact on rail freight will be.
