Crucial South Australian mining infrastructure project takes significant step forward

Worse than stationary

The proposed development of one of South Australia’s most significant infrastructure projects – a new multi-million dollar bulk commodities export facility at Port Bonython on Spencer Gulf – has taken a significant step forward. The South Australian Government and Spencer Gulf Port Link Consortium, the group originally selected by the government as its preferred bidder for project, jointly announced a comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be undertaken into the project. The consortium comprises Flinders Port Holdings, Leighton Contractors, Macquarie Capital, BIS Industrial Logistics and the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC).
