Noise report published for Tintenbar to Ewingsdale Pacific Highway upgrade
2 MAY 2017
Roads and Maritime Services advises the community the post-construction operational noise report for the Tintenbar to Ewingsdale Pacific Highway upgrade is now available.
Roads and Maritime engaged GHD to carry out the noise assessment after the jointly funded $922.7 million, 17-kilometre upgrade was completed in May last year.
Noise monitoring was carried out during August 2016 at various locations throughout the project to compare actual noise levels against the predicted noise levels used in the project design.
The monitoring also examined the effectiveness of mitigation measures in place to determine if further action was needed.
The assessment found operational noise levels closely match the predicted noise levels across all locations on the project and meet the EPA’s Environmental Criteria for Road Traffic Noise for new freeways.
The noise report has been reviewed by the NSW Environment Protection Authority and Department of Planning and Environment to ensure regulatory requirements have been met.
The report is available on the project website at www.rms.nsw.gov.au/pacific or by contacting the program office on 1800 653 092.
