Cairns Shipping Development Project

Ports North investigated the potential to improve shipping access to the Port of Cairns. The Cairns Shipping Development Project aimed to enhance port capabilities to meet the world’s growing cruise itineraries and to accommodate the new class of cruise vessels known as mega class ships.

A DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT was developed and can be viewed below.

However, during the course of the EIS, changes including the Federal Government’s regulation on sea disposal and the Queensland Government’s Sustainable Ports Development Act 2015, impacted the EIS outcomes.

The Queensland Coordinator General has extended the time period for finalisation of the EIS report to 30 June 2017. This allows Ports North to revise the EIS in consideration of legislation changes while maintaining the Project intent of increased cruise and other shipping access to the Port of Cairns.
