Construction Environmental Management Plan

A construction environmental management plan was developed prior to the start of construction.

The plan addresses a number of issues, such as construction activities, environmental management and strategies including:

  • Environmental management procedures for construction processes
  • Monitoring, inspection and test plans for all activities and environmental qualities, for example, specific tests and protocols
  • Environmental management instructions for all complex environmental control processes that don't follow common practice or where the absence of such instructions could be potentially detrimental to the environment
  • Consultation requirements with relevant government agencies.

The Plan also covers a range of issues:

  • Noise and vibration
  • Air quality
  • Water
  • Erosion and sedimentation
  • Contaminated spoil and acid sulphate soils
  • Spoil stockpile and disposal
  • Waste/resources management
  • Flora and fauna
  • Resource use and recycling
  • Utilities, access and traffic
  • Property adjustments
  • Heritage and archaeology
  • Groundwater
  • Visual screening, landscaping and rehabilitation
  • Hazards and risks
