SELWYN TIMES Tuesday October 18 2016 11 News MidlandPort officially opened LYTTELTON PORT of Christchurch celebrated its new ‘inland port’ at Rolleston with an official opening ceremony on Friday. Selwyn MP Amy Adams cut the ribbon at the opening of MidlandPort, which began operating in June. The facility was built to handle container freight travelling between Lyttelton and other South Island locations and to future-proof the port company’s transport connections for Canterbury’s trade growth. It is one of two inland ports in Rolleston, with the Port of Tauranga having opened MetroPort in the Izone business park last year. LPC chairman Trevor Burt said MidlandPort saved a journey to Lyttelton for customers working with the eight shipping services and 14 shipping lines that visited the port. “It is strategically positioned at the intersection of major transport routes, with rail access to all points west and south of Rolleston,” Mr Burt said. “It also services the increasing productivity from the Canterbury Plains. Irrigation is boosting exports such as dry and refrigerated dairy, frozen meat and vegetables. “In central Canterbury, 60,000 hectares of mostly dryland farms will be transformed by the Central Plains Irrigation Scheme. That will increase agricultural output by about $264 million a year.” Mr Burt said the facility was also improving travel time for freight transport and helping reduce road congestion. “Each round trip rail service takes up to 80 truck trips off our roads. This is a positive step as our city focuses on improving transport efficiency,” he said. “Already we have welcomed major customers such as Westland Milk Products and The Warehouse on board. We are managing hundreds of containers here every week and volumes have tripled since we opened.” MidlandPort was a vital part of LPC’s planning to be ready for a forecast 50 per cent increase in exports and imports in the next nine years. “As trade grows so do the size of the cargo vessels. We must be ready to accommodate bigger ships that will carry more cargo,” DOING THE HONOURS: Amy Adams speaks at the opening of MidlandPort on Friday, while Mayor Sam Broughton (below left) talks to LPC chief executive Peter Davie.

We handle in excess of half the South Island’s container volume, including more than 70 per cent of imports.” LAWyerS We have over 40 years’ experience to assist you with… • Buying and Selling Houses and Commercial Property • Wills, Trusts and Estate matters • All issues facing you and your business; • Employment Law matters; • Traffic matters; • Earthquake related issues; and • Advice regarding Retirement Villages Call John, Brendan or Andrew today on 03 366 8996 to find out how we can help you.
