Since being leased by Landbridge Group, the Darwin Port has undergone significant transformation and development to cater for future growth due to the extensive connectivity with ports in China and elsewhere.
Mr Peter Dummett of Landbridge will outline the various projects underway at the port, including the development of a large cold storage facility.
The Land Development Corporation is the Territory’s strategic land developer.
Mr Paul Schneider will provide a briefing on the Corporation’s Truck Central Project, the first stage of a 70 hectare Transport Industry Precinct located at the crossroads of the Top End’s major heavy vehicle routes.
Truck Central will be a one stop location for the transport sector, providing a heavy vehicle inspection facility, over 3 hectares of road train assembly area, a road house/fuel station and featuring over 20 industrial lots for the clustering of truck depots, truck sales, servicing, maintenance, body repairs and tyre retailers.
In addition, you will visit the East Arm Logistics Precinct which includes the Common User Facility, Darwin Business Park and the proposed Marine Service Area.
These facilities integrate with Truck Central and Darwin Port by providing opportunities for trade and freight movement efficiencies.
