Tamworth Regional Council has initiated the development of a multi-stage major enterprise park and logistics project, which will significantly enhance the economic landscape of the city and provide vast ongoing benefits to the wider region. The site has been named the Tamworth Global Gateway Park (TGGP).
A 246-hectare site to the western edge of the city has been master planned to create an enterprise park with the flexibility to cater for industrial and business development. Just seven kilometres from the Tamworth CBD, the Park is accessible via the Oxley Highway and an existing heavy vehicle road network. The Tamworth Global Gateway Park is also adjacent to Tamworth Regional Airport, one of the best equipped regional airports in the state, accommodating Boeing 737 sized freight aircraft.
Considered the new ‘economic engine room’ for the north of the state, TGGP will be home to a purpose-built double sided intermodal rail freight terminal. This will be operated by Qube Holdings, a multinational Australian company and leader in integrated logistics solutions focused on import and export supply chains. This premier freight and logistics hub will have dedicated access to the Port of Botany and the Port of Newcastle.
Best of all, the expense of installing large scale development infrastructure at the site has been taken care of, including an $11 million investment into trunk stormwater drainage for the site, in addition to significant roadworks within the park and around Tamworth. Large scale development of the Tamworth Global Gateway Park is already well underway, with Stage One lots currently for sale and attracting significant interest.
