E11 Modification Request

Roads and Maritime Services is requesting a modification for the NorthConnex condition of approval on display with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) for feedback to rectify an unfortunate historic transcription error. 

The transcription error relates to VOC limits listed in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that was publicly exhibited in 2014. The VOC limits were incorrectly listed as 1mg/m3 as opposed to the intended 4mg/m3.

The change reflects the 4mg/m3 limit that is consistent with all major road tunnel projects in NSW.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reviewed the proposal and is satisfied that the proposed limit change will not change air quality impacts associated with the operation of NorthConnex as no modifications to the design and operation of the ventilation system are proposed.

The community is encouraged to have their say via the DPIE Major Projects website from Friday 30 August to Thursday 12 September and we appreciate the community’s understanding while this transcription error is rectified.
