Project Iron Boomerang - November 2022
An interview with Shane Condon, Founder & Managing Director of Project Iron Boomerang,
& Captain Steve Pelecanos, Marine Pilot & Maritime Expert.
Hosted by Glen Isherwood, Citizens Insight editor & producer, Citizens Party researcher.
Project Iron Boomerang is an AUD$100 billion infrastructure project for Australia that would revolutionise the global steel making industry; revive Australian manufacturing; resurrect value-adding sectors in Australia; and permanently employ tens of thousands of people. It involves building a 3300 km heavy freight transcontinental rail line, rolling stock, ten steel mills, two dock-locked ports, and a fleet of more than 50 specialty ships to produce and export 44 million tonnes of steel a year. On 5 September 2022, the Australian Senate voted to launch an Inquiry into the Project for the first time. In this interview, we speak to two of the experts who first developed the idea in 2005 and have championed it ever since.
