Moorebank Logistics Park Infrastructure

Danterr is proud to have played a role in the construction of the Moorebank Logistics Park, a transformative infrastructure project revolutionising freight movement in Australia.  While our involvement in this project’s initial phase concluded in 2021, it remains a testament to Danterr’s expertise in supplying essential concrete construction materials.

The Moorebank Logistics Park – An Overview

The Moorebank Logistics Park, completed in 2021, is a major infrastructure project situated in Sydney, Australia. Its primary goal is to revolutionize how freight is transported, significantly reducing reliance on road networks.  Here’s how it achieves this:

  • Intermodal Terminals: The park features dedicated terminals for transferring shipping containers between rail and road transport. This streamlined process cuts down on truck journeys within the city.
  • National Distribution Centre: The interstate rail terminal enables more efficient long-distance freight movement, bypassing congested road networks.

Benefits of the Moorebank Logistics Park:

  • Reduced Road Congestion: The project aims to remove up to 3,000 heavy truck movements from Sydney’s roads daily, improving traffic flow and safety.
  • Faster Freight Transport: By shifting freight to rail, goods movement throughout the region becomes faster and more reliable.
  • Environmental Impact: Reducing truck traffic leads to a significant decrease in carbon emissions, promoting sustainability.
  • Economic Boost: Streamlining freight movement enhances supply chain efficiency, supporting businesses and stimulating economic growth.

Danterr’s Contributions to Moorebank Logistics Park

The successful construction of the Moorebank Logistics Park relied on a wide range of specialized concrete materials to ensure structural strength, durability, and optimal functionality. Danterr played a key role in supplying these products:

  • Rugasol C: This concrete surface retarder for horizontal surfaces was used to delay the hydration of freshly placed concrete. This allowed for the creation of exposed aggregate finishes with excellent anti-skid properties, or to create a mechanical key for subsequent concreting, screeding or rendering.
  • Form Oil: Our mineral-based form oil acts as a bondbreaker between formwork and concrete, ensuring smooth formwork removal and a clean concrete surface.
  • Formwork Accessories: Danterr supplied a variety of formwork accessories [link to the products page], essential for shaping and supporting concrete structures during the pouring and curing process.
  • Concrete Aspros: Concrete aspros (spacers) are used to support reinforcing steel within concrete structures, maintaining the correct concrete cover. This protects the steel from corrosion and ensures optimal structural integrity.
  • Concrete Rail Spacers: These specialized spacers, manufactured from fibre concrete, ensure accurate concrete cover for railway infrastructure components. Their high compressive strength and resistance to environmental factors contribute to the longevity of the structure.
  • Tie Wire Coils: Used for steel fixing and general fastening, tie wire ensures the secure placement and connection of reinforcing elements within the concrete.
  • Curing Compounds/ Retardants: Danterr provided a range of curing solutions to optimise the concrete curing process. These products control moisture retention and temperature regulation, leading to stronger and more durable concrete.
  • Hydrotite: This waterstop system creates a watertight seal within concrete joints, preventing leaks and protecting the structure’s integrity. Its ability to expand and contract with moisture changes ensures long-term joint protection.
  • Cork Self-Expanding T3: This joint filler expands when exposed to moisture, creating a flexible seal that accommodates movement within concrete structures.

Danterr’s commitment to seamless logistics ensured these materials were on-site and ready throughout the construction process. Our team worked closely with contractors to coordinate deliveries and meet the project’s demanding timeline.
