Salta to Lead Development of $50M Dandenong South Intermodal Terminal
Salta will lead the development of the Dandenong South Intermodal Terminal worth $50m.
The Victorian Government and Salta Properties have teamed up to jointly fund a combined $28m to connect a rail to Salta’s site boundary.
This move aims to retain Victoria’s status as the strongest state in containerised freight throughout the country.
The new terminal will be located on Salta’s 180-hectare Nexus Dandenong South Intermodal Estate and it has been estimated that the site will be worth over $1b in the next five years.
It is reported that Salta has spent $200m purchasing the land and funding road and infrastructure works on the site.
Work is expected to begin in 2021 and take 24 months to lay 800m of rail track as part of phase 1.
Hansen Yuncken are likely to tender for the industrial build of the Intermodal Terminal, and they have previously won the building contract for Salta’s $230m Richmond development at 459 Church Street.
Hansen Yuncken has an impressive history in building industrial sites and recently negotiated a contract for the construction of 9 buildings on the Pakenham Train Maintenance Facility worth $76 m in works.
This project which is currently under construction and is a segment of the $2.3b High Capacity Metro Trains Project PPP, which will support the upkeep, maintenance and operation of the 65 trains across the Metro train line.
Hansen Yuncken’s experience working on notable industrial projects include;
Building the Amart Distribution Centre in Truganina which was bought for $250m in 2019;
Building the Hilton Foods Queensland Quality Meats Facility centre with works valued at $102m, and building The Melbourne Markets Relocation project valued at $105m.
