According to Liverpool Council, company Qube Holdings - a partner in the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal development, is entering into a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) with Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to address a requirement for regional transport upgrades to allow for the transport and logistics facility.
Voluntary planning agreements are entered into by the Minister for Planning and a developer, which agrees to provide or fund public amenities and public services.
The VPA with Qube Holdings contains two items:
A contribution of $48 million towards regional road upgrades Works in kind and land dedication for road widening and realignment of the section of Moorebank Ave, south of the M5 motorway, to a four-lane road.
Liverpool Council chief executive officer Kiersten Fishburn said the agreement was in part a response to the council’s submissions to the Department of Planning and Environment to ensure cumulative impacts on surrounding roads and a funding strategy be considered as part of any development at Moorebank.
The council has indicated the Moorebank Terminals will have significant traffic impacts requiring improvements to the following:
Sections of the M5 Motorway, Hume Highway and Cumberland Highway Moorebank Avenue South, Cambridge Avenue, Newbridge Road/Heathcote Road/Moorebank Avenue intersection upgrade, Governor Macquarie Drive
The council will include its concerns about significant traffic impacts in its written submission to the VPA.
The VPA is on public exhibition until November 29. A copy can be found at:
