Funding for on-dock rail yard expansion in LA

The state of California has granted USD 21 million to the port of Los Angeles for its rail yard expansion scheme. The USD 34 million project will expand an existing intermodal rail storage yard on Terminal Island.


The project foresees the addition of about 9,500 km of track to expand the number of storage tracks from six to eleven. This will increase capacity and use of the pier 400 on-dock railyard by up to 525,000 teu per annum, and improve the overall rail operations throughout the ports of LA and Long Beach.


The project is a critical link between the San Pedro Bay port complex and the Alameda corridor, which carries about 11% of all waterborne containers. (ben)
