CBH Group says it is bringing in the state’s economic watchdog to mediate the negotiation process with Brookfield Rail over access to grain rail freight lines.

CBH has been negotiating with Brookfield for the past four months to reach a new commercial arrangement to use the lines, with the current rail access deal set to expire in June next year.

General manager of operations, David Capper, said differences in pricing expectations meant an agreement was unlikely to be achieved through the negotiations, forcing CBH to begin the process to bring in the state Economic Regulation Authority to mediate the talks.
