2050 Port Development Strategy
The Port of Melbourne has released its 30-year Port Development Strategy 2050 (2050 PDS); a roadmap for the future development of the Port.
The 2050 PDS outlines ten key projects that will improve capacity at the Port and respond to the needs of a growing Victoria.
A key part of the 2050 PDS is a transformative rail project to improve landside transport connections for industry.
The Port's plan for rail terminals supports the Government's intention to move more freight on rail. We are working with the Government to progress this project.
The strategy provides a framework for the next thirty years, yet it is also flexible to respond to evolution in the industry, and changing community requirements.
We welcome your feedback on the 2050 PDS.
The Port Development Strategy 2050 has been developed in consultation with industry, key stakeholders and the community, with 190 stakeholders participating in the development of the Strategy (Stage 1).
Stage 2 and 3 are complete, and now we are at Stage 4. We are committed to working closely with our industry, governments and the community to develop the Port in an environmentally, socially and commercially sustainable manner.
To provide feedback on the 2050 PDS, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for comment is December 6 2019.
