We have designed a range of environmental improvements and mitigations into the construction and operation of Ruakura Superhub. At a high level these benefits are summarised in this illustration.
A report by infrastructure consultant Castalia shows that the modal shift from road to rail afforded by the Ruakura Inland Port will remove an estimated 65,000 long-haul truck journeys per year when the port is at operating capacity. Carbon emissions are estimated to reduce by 600 tonnes per year. This reduction in the burning of transport fuels (diesel) is a significant step towards the future decarbonisation of the nation’s supply chain.
