Melbourne to Build New Container Terminal

The Victorian Government announced that it will proceed with a A$1.2B redevelopment of Melbourne’s container facilities to provide short- and medium-term coverage for trade growth ahead of a completely new box port at Hastings, which is expected to take 15 years to complete.

The centrepiece of the announcement is the conversion of Webb Dock, at the mouth of the River Yarra, into Melbourne’s third international container terminal, most likely to be operated by Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH), which already has new terminals underway in Brisbane and Sydney/Port Botany.
