My wife and I are presently residents in the Bundera estate and we are
of the opinion that we are pexperiencing dust from the present level
of operations at the Con crush site. We did however purchase the land
and built our house in Guest street being aware of the Concrush
operation and the possibility of some dust being experienced with the
wind from the direction of the Recycling Crushing and Screening
operation .We ,therefore ,are not opposed to the present level of
operations at the site.We do however most definitely oppose the
expansion of the operation to the proposed level of production and
storage at the site as this will result in the approximate tripling of
the dust generation at the site. I am confident in stating my concerns
in this regard as I am currently employed by a company which supplies
Crushing and Screening equipment in the Mining and Construction
industry and I have extensive experience with this type of operation.

I have concerns with regard to the increase in traffic and types in the
vicinity for access to this location.
All minor and major roads will be impacted on due to traffic number
increase and size of vehicles .The Speers Point roundabout at Five
Islands Bridge is already inadequate with traffic volumes and the
roundabout near Cockle Creek railway station will have increased use
with the continuation of Muninbung road extension to Cardiff in the
future as well as increase due to current residential expansion .This
also includes the road noise increase
The Weir road access will be adversely impacted upon with increase in
use.
The access roads pass through residential and school zone areas.
All roads will have an increase in deterioration and therefore require
increased maintenance. Who will fund this on a regular basis
Will the truck usage be compliant with current load limits in the
travel access areas
Thankyou

More dust pollution, that's all we need.

Teralba requires significant road upgrades before this should be
considered. Billy's Lookout is already one traffic disaster too many.
To exacerbate the problem at the other end would be highly
irresponsible. Racecourse Road is already an accident waiting to
happen.

My sister inlaw was in a car crash a few days ago with another vehicle on
thIs road which is already dangerous. More traffic without road
upgrades would be irresponsible. Also many homes in Boolaroo look upon
this site on the hill and to make it even larger would again only give
Boolaroo another isore to look at and add more dust to the already
dirty area due to this and the ex pasminco site. When is council going
to start letting Boolaroo become beautiful instead of allowing
continued pollution, hasnt the area suffered enough. What council also
allows a Main street premise to store hundreds of tyres in the open
for all to see. Fire hazard. Dont allow the enlargement of this site
to proceed.

I would object to the application, as there would be a significant
increase in heavy vehicle traffic along Wakefield Rd.
The traffic report in Appendix J is unclear as to whether trucks
carrying raw materials would use the northern route comprising of
Racecourse Road, The Weir Road, Northville Road and then Wakefield
Road, as on page 6 it states smaller vehicles may access the site via
this route, but then on page 15 the traffic report states that
"Wakefield Road is a two lane two way rural standard road that is
capable of accommodating heavy vehicles, should the Weir Road route be
utilised. Whilst this is considered unlikely, it is available as an
alternate route to the M1 Pacific Motorway via the Palmers Road
interchange to the south." This alternative route as not been
assessed.
The traffic report does not detail how the heavy vehicles will move
from Five Islands Road to the M1 Palmers Road interchange. There
appear to be two main routes, the first through Toronto and along
Awaba Rd, the second is along Miller Rd which connects back to
Wakefield Rd. Both of these routes have not been considered in the
assessment.
If these alternative routes along Wakefield Rd are utilised there
would be significant increase in traffic along a road that is already
busy with trucks, from the Metromix Quary. As a daily commuter along
Wakefield Rd there are no overtaking lanes along this 10km stretch of
road to the Rhondda Rd intersection, which means I can be caught
behind a truck some days for 10+ minutes. However if these trucks take
the alternate wakefeild Rd route there will be a significant increase
in traffic, 1 additional truck every 5 minutes, this would result in
multiple cars being struck behind these slow trucks.
I have seen very reckless behaviour where trucks have causes many near
misses along this road, and if these trucks are using this alternate
route the danger will only increase. I would recommend installing an
overtaking lane along Wakefield Rd to mitigate these dangers.
Please clarify if these heavy vehicles will use Wakefield Rd to access
the M1 Palmers Road interchange and if so, please assess the impacts
of the vehicles.
