The money will go towards expanding the capacity of the existing truck wash.

The owners of the TRLX facility, RLX, will co-invest in the upgrades which will enable the Tamworth facility to handle not only the region’s livestock transport vehicles, but also trucks of all shapes and sizes that support and service a diverse range of businesses within the region.

“It is pleasing to see that both the State and Federal Government and the Tamworth Regional Council have thrown their support behind the TRLX facility by co-investing in critical infrastructure for the benefit of the entire region,” RLX representative, Garry Edwards said.

“The TRLX truck wash capacity has now been future proofed for all transport operators, whether they are livestock transporters or other heavy vehicle businesses operating in the region.

“I would like to personally thank the Tamworth Regional council and Kevin Anderson for their ongoing support to our investment in assets in the Tamworth community.”

TRLX has now firmly established itself as the premier livestock marketing facility within the region and is in the Top 5 facility’s in NSW for overall throughput.
