Road trains on the outer as EPA approves skyrail in Pilbara

Transporting iron ore across the Pilbara via skyrail has been approved by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).
The Bulk Ore Transportation System, or BOTS, will transport iron ore from the Iron Valley Project to Port Headland.
Designed to replace road trains, the skyrail will be mounted onto concrete beams, which in turn are spanned between precast concrete substructures. The carts/wagons will be powered by diesel and petrol.
All aspects of the project, including supporting infrastructure, will be monitored from a Perth-based control centre.
Four environmental factors were taken into consideration when the approval was given including flora and vegetation and terrestrial fauna. Also, there will be a decrease in the use of road trains, which is claimed to have a positive affect on the environment.
