Rozelle Rail Yards site management

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 will undertake 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

From August 2017, work on site will include:

  • Site establishment including installing fencing, temporary site offices, erosion, sediment and drainage controls
  • Removing waste, stockpiles of materials and vegetation
  • Removing existing rail infrastructure, buildings and redundant services
  • Site stabilisation and stormwater controls

Roads and Maritime Services has appointed Fulton Hogan Construction Pty Ltd to carry out this work. The work will take around 12 months to complete.

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.

Keeping you informed

Work on site will begin during the week of 21 August 2017.  For more information on this work view or download the August community notification.
