The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is planning to provide a container handling rail-head to service two adjacent sea-terminal container operators. The site, Elizabeth Port Authority Marine Terminal, was evaluated by NNPInc to provide for rail-head layouts for a combined Straddle Carrier and Rail Stacker operation in the first phase, with later provision of Rubber Tired Gantries. A design to permit pull-in train operation was prepared. A combined runway beam and paving criteria, rail-track and loading pad layouts to accommodate all three types of equipment and high throughput criteria were evaluated. Evaluation of the submitted proposals is awaited
