Moorebank Intermodal

The Federal and NSW Governments have made a commitment to deliver an Intermodal at Moorebank, made up of an intermodal freight terminal including logistics and warehousing facilities, to allow shipping containers to be transferred between rail and road.

The Independent Planning Commission has approved the the project. The Federal Government is part-funding the development through a public-private partnership between the Moorebank Intermodal Company (MIC), an Australian government business, and the Sydney Intermodal Terminal Alliance (SIMTA), a private sector consortium. SIMTA will deliver most of the capital investment, and both MIC and SIMTA will provide land to the precinct.

Liverpool City Council did not approve the Moorebank Intermodal. Council will represent the interest of the Liverpool community by continuing to scrutinise the development and make representations to the State and Commonwealth Governments as the project progresses.

Council will act as a representative of the local community, with the interest of protecting the natural and built environment, and to promote a high quality of life for Liverpool residents, and make submissions wherever necessary to the State and Commonwealth Governments.

During the construction phases, there are likely to be some impacts on the local environment and community. For any general enquiries, contact SIMTA’s General Enquiries line - 1800 986 465 - or email
