Port Waratah Terminal 4 approval

October 02, 2015

The approval of the Port Waratah Terminal 4 project by the Planning Assessment Commission is a significant boost for the Hunter economy and for NSW, reflecting the strong global demand for NSW coal. 
 
The approval of this significant infrastructure investment is also welcome news for the more than 10,000 Hunter coal miners and their families, the coal mining communities of the Hunter, and the more than 4000 Hunter businesses that supply the mining sector.
 
Last year was another record year for coal exports out of Newcastle, driven by increased demand from existing and emerging international markets.
 
This reflects ongoing strong demand for NSW coal, which continues to be by far this State’s most valuable export commodity.
 
The expected growth in coal export volumes over the long term requires prudent forward planning to ensure our export infrastructure can cope. The T4 approval is an important part of this process.
