Freight on Rail, a campaign working to get goods off roads and on the rail, has launched a web site. The web site is designed to help local and regional authorities through all the stages of the transfer to rail. Freight on Rail recognizes that it is difficult for authorities to access information needed for planning a rail freight strategy because the information is often dispersed. The site is designed to act as a portal, through which local authorities can get information on path gauges, routes and freight interchange locations. It also provides links to industry web sites to help access grants and engage with terminal operators.
