Update Details in attached PDF below


Summary from Briefing Session 1

  • The project is scheduled for 16 weeks.
  • For most of the time, approx. 13 weeks, 47 carspaces are needed for plant and equipment.
  • 70 carspaces ( 25%of the old carpark ) is needed at the start and finish of the project for a week and a half.
  • Work is to be completed by 20 December, if that can’t be achieved work will stop, the site area will be returned to carpark until February when work will recommence.
  • The site will be used for plant and equipment including project sheds, materials storage, waste (sludge) processing, the drilling equipment, and vehicles.
  • The vehicles are trucks and 2 utes. 
  • The trucks obviously transport waste/sludge and materials, the 2 utes will be used as required during the day and transfer of the workers. 
  • There will be a small team of 10 who are coming from interstate, no private vehicles on site or at Church Point anywhere.
  • Compensation to those who agree to relocate to Rowland Reserve is by way of a discount of $350 on the Church Point parking sticker and, to facilitate transfer to Church Point from Rowland Reserve, a choice of either an Opal card or an Uber card loaded with approx. $200 (to be confirmed, may be more), and possibly a taxi option too.
  • There will be no time limit to use the card credit which may increase the appeal to those who have an infrequently used vehicle.
  • The actual offers are expected to be finalised shortly. 
  • Ausgrid really does need those who park at Church Point to do the survey to get a better handle on how people use their cars.
  • Please visit the link at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/sctlndind to complete the questionnaire, so that we can fully understand your needs.
NBC has not agreed to the 1 hour limited spaces being made available during the period on the grounds that the businesses and local onshore residents have needs too and changing the hours will create a precedent.
