Extractive Industries in South Gippsland Supply Chain Study
The South Gippsland region has been identified as one of the top five strategic extractive resource locations in Victoria.
It is a critical location for hard rock, sand and gravel, driven partly by its proximity to markets in greater Melbourne.
The region includes Lang Lang, Nyora and Grantville through to Leongatha South and the primary transport routes westwards from South Gippsland pass through Cardinia Shire and the City of Casey before dispersing across greater Melbourne.
The scope of the study includes origin and destination of materials, annual volumes from South Gippsland, options to improve capacity and efficiency of the freight transport system, and implications in terms of investment and planning processes.
