Country Road Roundabout
Providing increased connectivity
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 at Westdale bounded by Goddard Lane, Goonan Street, Marathon Street and the Oxley Highway 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, accommodating Boeing 737 sized freight aircraft. This makes the park readily able to capitalise on prospects in the transport, freight, manufacturing and warehousing industries.
Council purchased the greenfield site in 2016 to provide suitable land for new business or expansion of existing business. Its development has a key role to play in the region’s economic growth and employment opportunities over the next 20 or more years, and is the centrepiece of Council's Blueprint 100 strategy.
Considered the new ‘economic engine room’ for the north of the state, the TGGP will soon 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.
The precinct has three different but interconnected projects:
Council infrastructure projects
Major infrastructure projects to develop the site of the Tamworth Global Gateway Park site include:
Sales of both Stage One and Stage Two lots are well underway, with 79% of all lots now sold or on hold / under contract.
Three major development infrastructure projects were completed in March 2022, representing a total investment of more than $24 million in the Tamworth Global Gateway Park (TGGP). The Intermodal Access Road, upgraded Goddard Lane and Trunk Stormwater Drainage infrastructure are now in place, meaning that Stage One and Two lots are now ready for further development from businesses.
Tamworth’s $9.543 million, dual-lane, five-leg Country Road Roundabout was completed in October 2022, marking the end of a significant undertaking that began in July 2020.
The Country Road Roundabout is a critical piece of infrastructure, creating access points between the Oxley Highway and extended heavy vehicle network, Tamworth Regional Airport, new Tamworth Global Gateway Park, Intermodal Freight Facility and Hunter Land’s Tamworth Business Park.
Construction of the Jewry Street Extension has also begun with a new roundabout and heavy vehicle bypass to be constructed in Jewry Street, Taminda.
The new roadway providing a route around Taminda’s industrial streets will improve safety for road users and reduce the impact of the expected increase in volume of traffic and heavy vehicles accessing the Tamworth Global Gateway Park and Intermodal Freight Facility.
John Holland Rail
Five kilometres of non-operational rail line has been reactivated between West Tamworth to Westdale to allow rail access for the planned Tamworth Freight Rail Facility. This work was carried out by John Holland Rail on behalf of Transport for NSW in partnership with Council and the Department of Regional NSW, and was completed in October 2021.
Qube Holdings have been engaged by Council through an open expression of interest (EOI) to design, build and operate the the Intermodal Freight Facility within the Tamworth Global Gateway Park. The Intermodal Freight Facility is expected to be operational by mid-2023.
To date funding committed for the Tamworth Global Gateway Park includes;
Of the $55,496,000 contributed by the NSW Government, $20,246,000 is funded by the NSW Government’s Growing Local Economies fund relating to construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Country Road and the Oxley Highway to provide road access to the site, installation of trunk stormwater drainage necessary to develop the land and construction of the Jewry Street Extension.
A further $35,250,000 has been contributed by Transport for NSW for the reactivation of 5km of rail line between West Tamworth to Westdale, to allow rail access for the planned Intermodal Freight Facility.
The Australian Government has committed $2,202,291 from the Building Better Regions Fund for construction of the Intermodal Access Road. $4,532,000 from the Australian Government Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program has also been contributed to help fund the Country Road Roundabout in association with the NSW Government and Council.
