Infrastructure major GVK Group has received the Australian federal governments approval for its Abbot Point Port Capital dredging programme. This move finalises ministerial environmental approvals for its Galilee Basin coal assets and associated infrastructure.

Achieving this final environmental approval from the federal government is a significant milestone towards the development of GVK Hancocks Terminal 3 (T3) port facilities and Galilee Basin coal assets, including the Alpha, Alpha West and Kevins Corner coal projects, along with the construction of a rail solution to the Abbot Point Port.

Together with the previously received clearances for the Alpha mine, the rail to Abbot Point and the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC) approval for the port, GVK Hancock has solidified its position in the Galilee Basin of Queensland, Australia.
