    coal port in AustraliaQueensland’s new state government  cleared ​the plans of Adani Enterprises  and GVK  to expand a port for coal projects that are opposed by green groups worried about pollution and damage to the Great Barrier Reef. The approval, supporting separate mining projects planned by the companies ​came as a surprise as the new Labor government had been seen as less supportive of the coal industry than its predecessor conservative government.

    The port expansion was to have involved dumping 3 million cubic metres of soil dredged at the port of Abbot Point into the sea about 25 km (15 miles) from the Great Barrier Reef.
