Managing Construction Impacts

Noise

Contractor’s working on the site will be asked to manage construction noise throughout the project duration. This includes

  • regular updates to the community on planned noisy works
  • monitoring of noise levels where required
  • Ensuring construction methodology minimises noise intensive activities
  • Works are to only take place within construction working hours:
    • 7am -6pm Monday – Friday
    • 8am -1pm on Saturdays

Dust

To minimise the impact of dust contractors will  be required to cover or vegetate exposed surfaces as soon as practicable. When not possible exposed surfaces are to be wetted down or treated so as to prevent dust. Construction access are to be well maintained and swept tracking of dirt and dust onto the road network is minimised.

Traffic

No parking is allowed on the public road network with all parking maintained on site. Access is only to be through designated site accesses with all deliveries taking place during working hours. Dedicated access points have been assessed and certain movements are restricted during morning and evening peak to prevent impacts to the surrounding road network. The community is also to be notified of road closures and detours which may be required as part of the works.
