Supporting infrastructure upgrades

To function efficiently and effectively, Moorebank Logistics Park needs upgrades to its surrounding infrastructure: a local road system that can cope with both background traffic growth and terminal traffic; and an efficient rail freight line with sufficient capacity to handle the planned throughput volumes. In 2018-19, MIC continued to engage with Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), NSW Ports and the port operator, port operators, to understand and support the need for appropriate rail capacity continues to be available to access Moorebank Logistic Park.

Critically, the Botany Rail Duplication Project, planned for construction in 2020-23 and currently subject to State Planning Approval, will duplicate the remaining 2.9 kilometres section of single line track of the Port Botany Rail Line between Mascot and Botany and construct 1.4 kilometre passing loop at Cabramatta. This is essential to support the throughput ramp-up profile for Moorebank Logistics Park.
