Patrick Terminals hits rail project milestone

Patrick Terminals has announced that construction on the US$190 million ‘on-dock’ rail project at Patrick Terminals – Sydney AutoStrad at Port Botany is progressing as planned with the first stage of the construction program due for completion at the end of 2020.

Michael Jovicic, CEO of Patrick Terminals said, “We now enter a phase where we commence the installation and commissioning of the automated rail mounted gantry (ARMG) cranes. Patrick Terminals will maintain rail services during this significant capital works programme.”

Patrick Terminals has advised that the ability to handle the current rail volume will be maintained and rail windows will be optimised by consolidating and removing inefficient services from the schedule. The changes to rail windows will take effect from March 2020.
