In an interesting news article (http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/labor-floats-plan-for-giant-pier-out-into-port-phillip-in-its-bay-west-port-plan-20140729-zy7u5.html), Labor previously had proposed the installation of a container port near Geelong to the west side of Port Phillip Bay.

The pier would extend out at least three kilometres to sea so as to reduce the required amount of dredging which would be required to build the port. It would then run parallel to the shore for approximately five kilometres. Large cargo ships carrying upwards of 10,000 containers would be able to dock at an offshore terminal and unload cargo. The cargo would then be moved by rail to land.

The proposed port would be one of Australia’s largest, with the capacity to handle around 10 million shipping containers on an annual basis. This is nearly double the amount that is handled at the Port of Melbourne. The estimated cost for the project is 10 billion. Between 66 million and 84 million cubic metres of material would have to be dredged from the sea floor to allow ships to reach the site.
