How will construction noise, vibration and dust be managed?

During construction, the following measures will be undertaken in order to minimise noise and vibration:

  • No scheduled project construction, maintenance and decommissioning activities to occur during night time, Sundays or public holidays unless prior approval has been granted by relevant regulatory body;
  • Shut off / throttle down any vehicles or equipment not in use; and
  • Where reasonably practicable, utilise latest noise reduction equipment and technology.

During construction, the following measures will be undertaken in order to minimise dust generation:

  • Avoid or minimise ground disturbance, soil movement and other dust producing activities;
  • Utilise water or wetting agent on any exposed areas, including unpaved roads and lay down areas;
  • Utilise wind breaks and silt fencing; and
  • Undertake flexible management of speed limits in accordance with road and wind conditions.
