Construction of Interstate Terminal at Moorebank Logistics Park (MLP) in Australia begins

The construction of the Moorebank Interstate Terminal which makes up the Moorebank Logistics Park (MLP) in Australia has officially begun. The scope of the project includes the development of a container handling facility alongside the construction of a dedicated rail link to Port Botany.

The Interstate Terminal project strives to enhance the resilience of Australia’s supply chain, provide thousands of local jobs as well as reduce transport emissions. It will have the capacity to service about 1,800 meters long interstate trains that will each, be moving well up to 1,500 tons of consumer goods. The terminal will also position itself as a major interchange point for freight right along the east coast.

Moorebank Logistics Park (MLP) in Australia

At an estimate, the Moorebank Logistics Park (MLP) site’s area is equivalent in size to the Sydney CBD, spanning over 240h. It will feature an underway interstate terminal that serves Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. In addition, it will feature about 850,000 meters squared of state-of-the-art warehousing. Moreover, it will feature links to key roads, which include the M7 as well as the M5.

Since development works on the container handling facilities have already begun, the Moorebank Logistics Park (MLP) in Australia has been confirmed to be right on schedule. Upon completion, it will replace well over 100 B-double trucks per train trip, therefore, significantly reducing congestion on Australian roads. Meanwhile, it will simultaneously facilitate the potential increase in future freight volumes.

While commenting on the project, the Federal Minister of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, and Local Government said that its progress is a demonstration of the government’s commitment. Catherine King also said that the project will also enhance road safety as well as deliver better environmental outcomes.
