TRAFFIC through Geelong's port is set to quadruple under a bold blueprint for Corio Bay.
The plan would see 60 million tonnes of goods move through the port every year with massive cargo ships berthing on our northern shores.
The council will vote next week on the plan, which would see Geelong secure its position as the second biggest port in the state.
The blueprint for the port's growth includes:
DREDGING the shipping channels to cater to the increasing size of global fleets;
OPENING up the access to the port for B-Triple trucks;
RESTRICTING access on The Esplanade for non-port traffic between Seabreeze Parade and Madden Ave;
ADDITIONAL berths to help cater for the huge increase in traffic; and
TAKING throughput at Geelong Port from 16 million tonnes to 60 million tonnes.
City of Greater Geelong councillors will vote on Tuesday night on a number of recommendations, including writing to both the federal and state governments seeking funding to increase investment in the port and secure future jobs in Geelong.
The recommendations stem from the release of the Geelong Port and Land Freight Infrastructure Plan.
