EMM prepared the environmental impact statement (EIS) for the proposed project at Sandy Point Quarry in southern Sydney. The proposal included transporting glass and other inert wastes to the site, where they would be blended with quarried material to produce over 400,000 tonnes a year of products for the Sydney construction materials market. The project was declared a state significant development and required approval from the NSW Minister of Planning.
EMM identified that traffic impacts were a major constraint to the proposed development. In consultation with the client and Road and Maritime Services (RMS) we devised a significant upgrade of the site entry intersection with Heathcote Road that would maintain safety while allowing the increased truck movements required.
