Emergency cleanup procedures shall be
implemented in the case of any spillage. These
will include control of spilled material and removal
All spills are to be contained immediately and
remediated within 1 week. Remediation will
consist of removal of contaminated soils to an
appropriate treatment facility and will be in
accordance with Main Roads Document No.
In the event of a major spill that may contaminate
water sources or groundwater, DEC Emergency
Pollution Response is to be called (1300 784
The project areas, including hardstand areas, will
be kept in a tidy manner at all times. All litter on
the project will be placed into lidded bins and
disposed of at an approved landfill.

Inspection of all storage and service areas, spill

intervals throughout the project timeframe.
Inspections of hard stand area will be conducted
prior to commencement of construction and
throughout the course of the project.
All environmental incidents will be investigated by
the Environmental Officer, who will ensure that all
remedial actions are completed.

Any stockpiled vegetation from clearing works
shall not be burnt. This vegetation shall be used
during any rehabilitation works and either chipped
or replaced according to the revegetation plan.
Stockpiled vegetation shall be windrowed parallel
to the road alignment, not exceeding 2m beyond
the limit of the earthworks. The stockpile shall not
exceed 1.5m in height. Stockpiled topsoil shall
not be stockpiled on vegetation that is not
designated for clearing.
Wherever possible, the topsoil storage period will
be minimised to prevent reduction in biotic
viability. Topsoil will be stored and reused locally
rather than transported large distances.
During construction works, damage of existing
vegetation will be avoided as far as practicable.
Vehicles and equipment is not to be parked or
driven over tree roots or over vegetation that is
not designated for clearing.
Native vegetation to be removed is to be cleared
in a manner that ensures all clearing occurs within
the approved clearing areas. i.e machine turn
