As an operating quarry, Boral do undertake blasting approximately once a fortnight. The impact of this in terms of vibration is felt locally and the resultant dust plume can be seen and depending on the wind direction drift onto local residential areas.
The evidence is usually a fine grey dust on external surfaces and if windows are open internal. Boral measure and record the vibration impacts as part of their statutory monitoring and they issue notice of the results after every blast day to those registered for Blast notices.
If you wish to be added to the notifications you can join the 5049 Coastal Community Association. We’ll also keep you informed of public meetings about quarry activities. Boral will notify you via email when Linwood Quarry is blasting.
