Mainfreight Service Announcement - Fire in Melbourne's inner west - August 2018
Please be advised there is an ongoing factory fire in West Footscray, with more than 20 fire trucks currently at the scene fighting the out of control blaze.
Schools and businesses have been closed and a ‘Watch and Act' warning has been issued across much of the western suburbs. This is affecting container parks in the area and many have been evacuated as toxic fumes and black smoke fills the surrounding areas.
Our drivers are on the roads and making deliveries where it is safe to do so but traffic in the area is slow and delays may be unavoidable.
The container parks so far affected as per the below.
- Allied (Paramount Road)
- Container Space
- ANL (currently open but on high alert)
- OCS (currently open but on high alert)
We are working hard to minimse the impact on our operations but due to circumstances out of control empty containers for dehire or export collection will be delayed
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these challenges together.
