A new and independent gateway to the iron ore rich province of the Pilbara in Western Australia is being planned and developed.
The BBI Project expects to be a world-class infrastructure development in a safe and stable jurisdiction. When constructed it will comprise an integrated port and rail infrastructure system that will represent a new and independent gateway to the iron ore rich province of the Central and Western Pilbara region in Western Australia. The development of BBI will allow independent producers of iron ore access to essential infrastructure to enable development of new projects, competing with the existing dominance of the iron ore majors in the region.
BBI Group, majority owned by Todd Corporation of New Zealand, are in the process of securing all of the approvals required to enable the revival of the historical Balla Balla Port, which, combined with the building of a world class railway, will allow low cost, high value export of bulk iron ore from the central Pilbara.
