The expected truck movements would be similar to those currently going to the Mugga Lane Tip face with waste for the landfill but excluding trucks going to Mugga Lane with recyclables and green waste. This proposal is to divert tip-face trucks from the landfill to the recycling and renewable energy centre, but not divert green waste, yellow bin or hazardous wastes away from Mugga Lane.
In addition, CRS is presently talking with some large volume road freight users interested in using the new rail access at the site, the results of which would reduce overall truck numbers in the region.
Measuring truck movements in an important part of the work we have to do for the EIS. An independent traffic specialist (AECOM) has recently been engaged to investigate and report on traffic impacts. Our commitment is to keep the community informed about all transport proposals.
