Hey guys,

I thought it was about time we had a list of all the popular major threads due to the increasing number of people using this part of Ozscrapers. It was also getting annoying trying to locate threads that have vanished off the first page.

If there are any major threads I've missed (at least 100 posts/activity in the past 12 months), please let me know and I'll add them in

Cheers

Why isn't there a Port of Sydney thread?
Because there's no such thing. :) Shipping is spread out all over the place.

Inside Sydney Harbour, there's the cruise terminal at Circular Quay, another at White Bay which has an upgrade proposed. For freight, there's a small oil terminal at Waverton and some bulk freight occasionally use White Bay (I think) but that's going to be replaced in the urban renewal project. Everything else has moved out of Sydney Harbour now except for smaller fishing boats, recreational boats and a couple of Navy bases. And of course the hundreds of commuter ferries everywhere.

Outside of Sydney Harbour: container shipping goes to Port Botany and oil goes to Kurnell.

The majority of exports go to Newcastle or Wollongong and avoid Sydney completely.

So really it's so spread out that it'd be hard to keep it all in one thread. :)

Clive Palmer doesn't own the Port of Newcastle, a Chinese company does.
Yes they do want to expand, but what discussion around that project warrants it's own thread in the transport forum? It can easily be housed in the Newcastle thread in the NSW forum.

We shouldn't clutter the forums with unnecessary and rarely used threads.

I'm confused how these threads & sorting works. I posted on the "Inland Freight Rail" a month or so ago & I can't find it, not even in these lists. I checked the archives as well.

What am I doing wrong. :eek:hno:
