EDI/Walkers - Maryborough


 

Rail access to the EDI plant is not exactly what you might call 'direct'. Movements too and from the plant involve a trip down a branch line that once served the Maryborough sugar mill. The branch twists and turns along the river before moving inland and then paralleling a main road.

Access to the EDI plant is via trailing point off the branch that also runs along the main road and ends in a head shunt outside some local businesses in the main street. Stock moving into the plant then reverses and cuts across the busy main road shown in this photo.

I'm standing facing the head shunt and the EDI plant begins less than 100 metres behind me. The street that appears in the foreground of the photo is a public street that runs down the western perimeter of the plant.
