How we will manage works
For your safety, please stay on marked paths, and follow the signs or any directions from site staff during construction. 

Noise, dust and vibration will be closely monitored. This includes mitigation measures such as:
  • A class hoarding
  • Programming noisy works to occur during the day
  • Noise and vibration monitors
  • Water trucks to manage dust
  • Noise blankets
In addition, excavation works on the new Paediatric Services Building site is continuing. 
A specialist remediation contractor has been engaged to safely undertake the removal work in accordance with the requirements of SafeWork NSW and the NSW Environment Protection Authority.
A temporary stockpile site has been established near Mons Road for this work. A number of control measures are in place to ensure the safety of staff, patients, visitors and our workers. This includes our workers wearing protective clothing and suits, use of geofabric (orange or white material on site), wetting down areas and air monitoring.
