Let’s Get Real About Opportunity

The Terminal 4 Project has been master planned to create positive benefits to the economy and local region.

At peak construction of the Terminal 4 Project, the Hunter will be experiencing an injection of $770 million per annum, with over 2,900 direct and indirect jobs.

Socially, the development has the potential to bring substantial benefits through increased demand for services; from engineering to accommodation and hospitality. During operations, it is estimated an extra 80 operational jobs will be needed, plus contractor support work.

Once fully built it is estimated that Terminal 4 will create over $400 million in business turnover for the local economy. For the broader NSW economy there will be over 490 direct and indirect jobs.

The boost to the state economy, plus providing futures for so many local support contractors, employees and their families is an important part of any development.

You also know that we aren’t going to go in hiding while all the action is happening. We have a long history of being open and honest with the community and regulators – we’re proud to be the first harbour based company to run regular community information meetings.

Terminal 4 will provide so much more than infrastructure; it’s employment, it’s support to local communities, it’s a legacy to the skill and strength of our region’s people.

Let’s Get Real About Community Support

Port Waratah is proud to give back to the communities it serves. We have consistently contributed $750,000 each year to local charities, community groups and sports groups. We’re proud to support the community and give back where we can.

Let’s Get Real About Traffic Solutions

As part of the Terminal 4 master plan, Port Waratah is planning to minimise disruption to traffic especially around the peak periods in the morning and afternoon.

Originally a roundabout had been planned for the intersection of Cormorant and Pacific National Access Roads, and after consultation, we’ve changed that to a traffic light system that will ensure minimal disruption to the flow of commuter traffic on Cormorant Road.

During peak construction times, we’re planning shuttle buses and staggered construction times for the movement of construction workers to the Terminal 4 site. This should mean less workers are leaving during the normal peak traffic periods and congesting Cormorant Road. It’s all part of getting real about planning for a smarter future.
