Port Botany Expansion Sydney

The Port Botany Expansion was one of Australia’s largest port infrastructure projects.

The $A1 billion Port Botany Expansion is one of Australia’s largest port infrastructure projects aimed at doubling Sydney’s container traffic capacity.

As lead designer, Arcadis oversaw the creation of five new shipping berths, 2,000 meters of new wharf face, additional shipping channels, tug berths and facilities, and dedicated road access to the new terminal area.

The complex works involved dredging 7.8 million cubic meters of fill material and reclaiming 60 hectares of reclaimed land, and also calling for Arcadis to undertake specialist environmental management and ecological works to protect salt marsh/ sea grass and bird communities.

Precast concrete counterfort units were designed to suit the harsh environmental conditions and save construction time while the continuously reinforced 2.2km long crane provided a joint free solution. These were two important factors in the project being recognized for excellence in both the Australian Construction Achievement Awards and NSW Concrete Institute of Australia awards.
