Rozelle Rail Yards site management work

The former Rozelle Rail Yards site is overgrown and derelict from years of disuse. The site has not been operational for more than 20 years and is well overdue for a clean-up.

The NSW Government is undertaking a range of activities on the site, to help address these issues. These activities will also facilitate use of the site for future infrastructure purposes.

Activities on site

Roads and Maritime has started work to clean up the former Rozelle Rail Yards site, which is overgrown and derelict from years of disuse. Fulton Hogan Construction Pty Ltd is carrying out this work, which started in August 2017 and will take around 12 months to complete.

Activities on site are underway and include:

  • installation of a heavy vehicle weigh-bridge and wheel-wash facilities
  • installation of temporary site offices and signage
  • utilities identification and survey
  • site clearing including weed spraying and vegetation removal
  • drone photography to capture the progress of the work
  • cleaning up and removing older items and materials.

Future work on site includes the removal of rail infrastructure buildings and other structures.

Keeping you informed

As work progresses on site we will continue to keep the community informed by issuing notifications to affected community members. Regular project updates are also provided. Copies of these are found in the Project documents.

Project approvals

In 2016, Roads and Maritime Services prepared a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to assess the potential environmental impacts of the work. Fifty-eight submissions were made during the public display of the REF in November and December 2016, and these have been addressed in the Submissions Report.

When the project was determined, the approval took into consideration the environmental assessment, issues raised in community and stakeholder submissions, and the Submissions Report.
