Patrick’s Port Botany Redevelopment Project
Asciano have advised that the redevelopment project will commence from the end of March, and once completed, is expected to provide improved service through increased capacities.
In the lead up to the final cut-over for automation, there will be restricted capacity as construction work will take place in the midst of an operating terminal.
The cut over itself will see the Terminal operations ramping down operations from Thursday 26 March. From Sunday 29 March the Terminal will be closed for 4 ½ days to allow for the final civil and systems works required for automation to be completed. Unfortunately, these activities cannot be carried out during operations.
Patrick’s advise that the new automated terminal will go live from Thursday 2 April, followed by a ramp-up period.
It’s recognized that there will be disruption during the period of change however Patrick’s have assured carrier that they will be doing everything they can to help mitigate any impact to all.
We will continue to monitor and provide information on specific vessels or services that may be affected.
Meanwhile please do not hesitate to contact us should anything further be required.
