Transport for NSW has recently awarded Ward Civil (Ward) the contract for these works and will work with Ward to complete the detailed design of the capping layer that will encapsulate the contaminated materials. Ward will develop a landscape design and finally, carry out the remediation works.
The design phase will be completed by February 2022, with remediation works scheduled to commence shortly afterwards.
Between 1912 and 1969, Jackson Place was used as an informal rubbish tip for disposal of demolition rubble, organic waste (such as garden cuttings) and household waste. Similarly, the Wolli Creek flood plain was used for market garden activities from the 1920s to the 1960s.
Previous studies identified contaminants located in the northern part of the site resulting in approximately one third of the land requiring remediation. The studies indicated the contaminants are in low concentrations and are unlikely to have caused a risk to users of the site.
Remediation work is important to ensure that contamination on the site is managed and does not pose a future risk to the community and environment.
Once the remediation work is complete, Transport for NSW will transfer ownership of the site to the National Parks and Wildlife Service for its integration into the existing Wolli Creek Regional Park.
Transport for NSW has been in regular contact with neighbouring and surrounding residents and will continue to provide updates for the duration of the project.
