Parramatta. Increase in petrol tankers by road

A Shell spokesperson said the State Government's abolition of the 1.2 cents a litre subsidy, was not the driving force behind the switch from rail to road tankers. The decision was made on the basis of efficiency. Following the abolition of the subsidy, Shell has cancelled several freight rail journeys, adding 11 petrol tanker journeys from its Clyde refinery daily to the state's highways.
