Hanson to develop new terminal in Sydney

Published by

Australian building materials company, Hanson Construction Materials Pty Ltd, part of HeidelbergCement, is seeking approval to develop new shipping terminal facilities in Sydney to handle up to 1 million tpy of concrete aggregates, as well as an associated concrete batching plant.

The new terminal and batching plant would be located at Glebe Island and replace an existing facility in the Bays Market District, which is scheduled for redevelopment. The terminal would also support a second existing batching plant operated by Hanson subsidiary, Hymix.

The development of the Glebe Island site offers “several logistical and strategic benefits,” a Hanson spokesperson said in a statement, supporting the continued supply of concrete to major infrastructure and building projects around Sydney.

The new terminal facilities would also “minimise regional road traffic,” reducing the number of trucks on the regional road network by up 65 000 per year.

Hanson is currently in discussions with the Port Authority of New South Wales, which owns the Glebe Island site, to acquire a lease for the land required for the terminal and batching plant. The company is also working with the Environmental Protection Authority and Roads and Maritime Services to gain all necessary environmental and operational licences.
