Melbourne Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 March 1914
Melbourne Notes. Regarding -the Macarthur rail way (writes our Melbourne cor - respondent), I note the Commis sioners are to visit Port Fairy shortly. If the agitation is suc cessful the line should greatly im prove Port Fairy as a sea port. It is a move in the direction of pro gress and may lift the district out of the stagnancy which has existed so long. The Melbourne Harbor Trust intends building two piers inside the Victorian dock,; owing to the increase of shipping in this port. The matter is being freely dis cussed amongst shipping folk, and the building of the piers is being looked forward to with a great deal of satisfaction. A new wharf is to be built at Yarraville, below Newport, to accommodate the big oil steamers, which carry freights for the British Imperial Oil Co. These people have a big storage yard at Williams town at present, but are building big premises at Newport very shortly.
