Changes ahead at Webb Dock sooner rather than later

It was widely reported in the business pages today that the announcement of a third stevedore at Webb Dock is imminent.

It is old news that a third stevedore has been sought for some time. It was foreshadowed in the Port Development Strategy with competition being seen as a means of driving further productivity and efficiency in the port.

This (pre) announcement highlights the need for effective buffers to be put in place between the Port of Melbourne and Port Melbourne residential communities, the need to bring forward the planning for Dockside Road and keep Webb Dock rail on the agenda.
