The operational school zone is safely separated from any construction activities, secured with fencing. Wayfinding signage is in place to ensure students and families know where to go and to ensure access to work zones is avoided.
Mitigation measures will vary between projects and be adopted by the contractor to reduce impacts during construction. Measures may include: scheduling works to avoid sensitive times, selecting appropriate machinery and equipment, installing measures to mitigate noise and environmental impacts, ongoing monitoring and providing advance notice to the neighbouring community.
It is important to recognise that the construction period is temporary and the delivery of new educational infrastructure provides a significant long-term benefit to the broader community.
