    The site (Defence National Storage and Distribution Centre) the intermodal is proposed to be built on is historically highly significant. The site dates back to 1915 and was used as a military storage site. The Centre is important for its associations with the development of Australia’s military forces prior to and during the First World War and the Second World War and it continues to play an important role in Australia’s military today.

    “The DNSDC contains twenty Second World War post and beam warehouses, many of which, despite being re-clad, are good examples of their type. Particularly important are the fifteen timber post and beam military warehouses of the nine-bay type which played such an important role during the war and which were the widest post and beam military warehouses. Also important are the three composite steel and timber type warehouses. Post and beam military warehouses are small in number today, giving those at this site substantial rarity value. Additional interest is inherent in the fact that the buildings are understood to have been prefabricated in the United States and shipped to Australia in the early 1940s. Further, the alignment of part of the former military railway system is evidenced by the alignment and siting of some of the buildings and roads at the site”.
