Rail Access Coming to Global TransPark
DOT To Begin Construction in Early 2010 
railBringing rail transportation into the North Carolina Global TransPark (GTP) has been part of the GTP's master plan for many years.  Now, with Spirit AeroSystem's 500,000 square-foot manufacturing plant on the rise, the railroad track won't be far behind.
Construction on a 5.8 mile track, including a railway bridge and 10 roadway crossings, will begin in early 2010 and be finished no later than January, 2012 in order to fit the needs of Spirit AeroSystems.

But the new track system, with its connections to existing North Carolina Railroad tracks, is specifically designed to serve all the GTP's existing and prospective tenants, in addition to meeting the critical need for Spirit.
Jason Orthner is the civil engineer from the N.C. Department of Transportation's Rail Division who is overseeing the planning and construction for the GTP's new rail access, along with approximately 20 other such projects across North Carolina.

"The track we are putting in amounts to a spine or trunk line, allowing any number of spurs to come off of it in the future.  We have purposely placed it so that it is convenient to many tenant sites that may be occupied in the future."
