English term or phrase: racetrack stockyard
Port Schedule
The Port level 2 schedule was updated in the period to incorporate the revised scope associated with the PEA estimate Value Engineering process. As such, a new baseline has been created which reflects the option of export wharf in Morebaya River and also the racetrack stockyard.
The new baseline supports First Ore On Ship on 15 Jun 2015, but is prone to a number of significant risks including the possibility of less than favourable geotechnical conditions, slippage to permitting, issues with availability of dredging resources, and weather impacts to dredging.

« l'entrepôt de l'hippodrome » ? I can't tell if this is an actual racetrack or some sort of engineering term meaning something entirely different!

I thought of the racetrack pattern because it is also used in sites shipping/handling procedures for truck transportation.
Hope it helps! :-)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks Nancie... these are all aeronautical terms though which doesn't fit here (they're talking about a seaport not an airport) - but for lack of better options, hippodrome it must be.
