Arc Infrastructure is planning the development of an intermodal terminal that will connect with the RHLP and will offer tenants a direct rail link from the logistics park to the North Quay Rail Terminal (NQRT) at Fremantle Port.
Arc Infrastructure CEO Paul Larsen said that a purpose-built intermodal terminal would realise a reduction in delivery time and costs for RHLP customers and assist in increasing container volumes on rail.
“The intermodal terminal will serve as an inland port with a rail port shuttle service transporting containers between NQRT and Kenwick. It will also have the potential to offer regional or interstate rail services,” said Mr Larsen.
“Development of the terminal will support the government’s policy of increasing containers through North Quay on rail,” he said.
The Kenwick Intermodal Terminal will have a throughput capacity of 200,000 twenty-foot-equivalent-units (TEU) including an empty container park and be open access to any rail service. The terminal itself is likely to have a sole operator like current intermodal sites at NQRT, Forrestfield and Kwinana.
Arc Infrastructure’s proposed Kenwick Intermodal Terminal will be developed within the Kenwick Rail Freight Facility which is currently planned for completion at the end of 2020.
Arc believes that the key to increasing container rail volumes in the short term through NQRT is through the development of new inland intermodal terminals. Arc’s Intermodal Strategy is to develop a number of new inland terminals, beginning with Kenwick, to enhance the effectiveness of WA’s metropolitan rail freight supply chain.
