NSW to more than triple volumes by 2045
NSW Ports is forecasting a growth in containers through its port gateways from 2.4m teu to between 7.5m and 8.4m teu per year by 2045.
It says 80% of import containers travel no further than 40 kilometres from Port Botany. This trend will continue over the next 30 years, but greater volumes will move west and south west due to population growth.
The majority of regional exports to Port Botany travel by rail, with 86% of full export containers coming from regional New South Wales currently travelling by that mode.
Port Kembla is the next closest port to Sydney (within 90 kilometres), and NSW Ports says it is well connected with Sydney and regional NSW with established road and rail networks. It already services the Sydney market though the import of cars and construction materials.
Due to its proximity to Sydney, and the container destinations moving west and south west, Port Kembla has been identified by the NSW Government as NSW’s next container port, with an approval in place for a 1.2m teu container terminal in the Outer Harbour.
NSW Ports is investigating options for a larger 3m teu container terminal.
