Port Botany Expansion

The port of Port Botany has undergone a major expansion of its container port facilities in order to cater for long term trade growth.

The expansion project included:

  • The design, construction, procurement and eventual awarding to Hutchison Port Holdings of the 3rd Stevedore contract. Operations commenced in 2014.
  • A grade separation on Penrhyn Road. This elevated two lane roundabout, provides a safer and more efficient operational environment in Port Botany.
  • Banksia Street Pedestrian Overpass - Sydney Ports constructed an elevated pedestrian bridge over the Port Botany freight rail line at Banksia Street to ensure the safety of Botany residents.

The Port Botany Expansion Project featured:

  • 1,850 metres of additional wharf face for five extra shipping berths
  • 60 hectares of reclaimed terminal land
  • deep water berths with depths of up to 16.5 metres
  • dredging of approximately 7.8 million cubic metres of fill material to create shipping channels and berth boxes
  • dedicated road access to the new terminal area
  • additional rail sidings to provide rail access to the new terminal area
  • additional tug berths and facilities
  • rehabilitation and expansion of Penrhyn Estuary to create a secure estuarine environment
  • community facilities including boat ramp, look outs and pathways.
