Letter from City of Sydney Regarding Truck Movements

22 December 2005

Locked Bg 6501

Dear Mr Halliday

I refer to your letter concerning access to the MacDonaldtown Stabling Project site.

The City has no objection in principle to a small number of trucks accessing the MacDonaldtown Stabling Project site via local residential roads during the initial portion of the construction program when installing safety barriers and constructing the temporary new link road off Erskineville Road. 

The above trucks must only use the City Road/Darlington Road/Golden Grove/Wilson Street/Burren Street route to access the site as these particular streets are wider than most other streets in this area.  

The use of this route is subject to the following conditions:

  • Trucks can only use this route during standard construction hours ie 7.00am – 5.00 pm Monday to Friday and 7.00am – 3.00 pm Saturdays.
  • All truck drivers must comply with any directive of the City’s Law Enforcement Officers and NSW Police.
  • A copy of this authorisation must be retained on-site, and a copy placed on the dashboard of each truck coming to the site.
  • The City reserves the right to cancel this approval at any time.

Please note that once the new link road off Erskineville Road has been completed then all trucks going to or from the MacDonaldtown Stabling Project site must utilize this new link road and NOT use any of the nearby residential streets. In any exceptional circumstances where use of the link road is not possible, separate approval must be sought from Council for one off use of an alternative route

Should you require any further information regarding this matter, please contact Joseph Gomes on É 9246 7588.

Yours sincerely

Col Warne
Senior Transport Manager
