The Port of Los Angeles on the West cost of America is the country’s busiest container port.  A new project is underway to improve rail links at the container port.  The developments will create new jobs and allow for more straight forward routes out of the port.

The container port’s new and improved rail links aim to decrease its carbon footprint, whilst offering a more efficient service to transport containers to and from the freight forwarding port.

The improved rail links are intended to reduce congestion on the roads to and from the container port.  The total cost of the rail improvements are estimated to be in the region of $138 million.

The benefits are anticipated to outweigh this cost, making the area a nicer place to work, live and do business in.

It is envisaged that the development will be complete in the middle of 2014.
