“Market engagement process” for third Sydney cruise terminal launches.
The cruise sector has been formally invited to provide input on a potential new cruise terminal for Sydney at Port Botany.
NSW Minister for Transport, Andrew Constance, and Minister for Tourism, Stuart Ayres, said the market engagement process would “inform the next stage of delivering more capacity for Sydney’s growing cruise industry”.
Constance said the project would consider and assess options for an additional terminal at Yarra Bay or Molineux Point, following the Commonwealth Government ruling out Garden Island as an option.
The process is the first phase of a Detailed Business Case, which will be developed by the Port Authority of NSW in collaboration with NSW Treasury.
Detailed technical studies will consider the social and economic benefits, traffic and transport impacts, costs, heritage and environmental impacts at both potential sites, the government said, with “a strong emphasis on consulting with local stakeholders and the community”.
