Clayton Utz helps Pacific National with new Sydney freight hub

Clayton Utz is assisting in the development of a major freight hub that could cut a significant amount of truck trips from the Sydney road network.

The top firm is advising Pacific National on the planned St Marys intermodal terminal in the Penrith region of Western Sydney. The firm worked including on arrangements with ACFS for the hub that will provide port shuttles to access stevedoring terminals at Botany, Australia’s second-largest port.

Construction is set to begin this year, subject to local and state planning approvals. Reports say that the first stage of constriction costs $35m.

Clayton Utz said that their client expects to move 300,000 containers between Port Botany and St Marys per year, which would remove between 70,000 and 80,000 truck trips from the Sydney road network.

The Clayton Utz team is headed by partners Simon Brady, Samy Mansour, and Nikki Robinson. The core team includes partner Elizabeth Richmond, senior associate Lance Bode, and lawyer Anthony Cavallaro.
