Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum for residents and businesses in proximity to the project site, including:

  • Keeping higher noise-generating activities to the earlier stages of night shifts wherever possible
  • Ensuring plant / equipment used has been maintained (including noise control devices)
  • Minimising light spill by directing light-generating plant and equipment away from residences
  • Conducting toolbox talks with work crews to remind them of out of hours work protocols (no unnecessary noise).

We appreciate your patience during construction and will continue to update you as work progresses.
