Cooks River Intermodal Terminal
Sitting adjacent to the dedicated rail freight line linking Port Botany to the national rail network, Cooks River is an Intermodal Logistics Centre and empty container park providing an important link to the container logistics freight task.
The Cooks River Intermodal Terminal, ten kilometres from Port Botany, is directly connected to the Port by the Port Botany Freight Rail Line. The Terminal is an inland extension to the Port.
The Cooks River Intermodal Terminal operates under an open access regime available to all logistics providers. It utilises road and rail to transfer containers to and from Port Botany and regional New South Wales and provides the largest empty container storage facility in the state. The terminal enables empty containers to be transferred by road and rail to regional New South Wales for packing with export trade.
The Intermodal Terminal offers container storage as well as facilities for the repair, washing and upgrading of empty containers and other ancillary container related services.
It is accessible from key arterial roads including the Princes Highway, M5 Motorway and Eastern Distributor. Its location opposite the proposed WestConnex St Peters Interchange will provide a future direct connection to the key critical corridors of the M4 Motorway and a more direct connection to the M5 motorway.
The Cooks River Intermodal Terminal operates 24 hours per day, seven days a week (24/7).
The facilities at Cooks River consist of:
- 17.2ha of land
- 8 rail sidings
- Storage capacity for up to 16,500 TEU’s
