GOULBURN'S growing reputation as a logistics hub could see B-triple trucks thundering along the Hume Highway and rail infrastructure upgrades to cope with demand.
Business park proponents are already preparing for the day when the State Government will allow B-triples, or three trailer road trains, onto the Hume Highway.
They are also keeping options open in regard to rail access.
Land transport initiatives worth $19 billion were a major plank in last night's Federal budget.
The stage was set in March when the government announced 10 proposed B-triple routes, on select highways mainly west of Dubbo. A RTA spokesperson said B-triples did not currently operate in NSW, but where they were permitted, they were restricted to 90km/h.
