Perhaps ports could be better utilized to be more strategic for containers and open bulkers for grains and coal. Might ease rail lines and hwy routes. Just a thought

Might not be long until BHP is pushing potash through the coal port too/instead!

I’d much rather see a reconfiguration/minor expansion of the existing Westshore terminal/RBT than the RBT2 project, but that isn’t likely to happen.
People want their goods, they want them yesterday, but they don’t want to put up with the impacts terminal expansion. It happened on Centerm - people bitching about extra traffic (rail, truck, and vessel) but the reality is, we need additional port capacity if we are to continue with modern societies appetite for goods
