Nod for trucks full of soil on Sundays leaves Brisbane council dirty

The state’s Coordinator-General has ruled in favour of the practice, saying it would allow the Cross River Rail Delivery Authority’s infrastructure work to be finalised sooner.

Ms Power has allowed the spoil to be removed by trucks on Sunday because it would prevent weekday congestion and allow extra truck trips to be made on Sundays, meaning the work would be finished faster. “Sunday spoil haulage would avoid a worsening of traffic congestion in the Brisbane CBD and wider traffic networks on Mondays and Tuesdays that would otherwise be experienced due to increased haulage tasks on these days,” she said.

Soil from Albert Street can not be carted through the CBD on Sundays until the impact of the Roma Street Station ruling can be assessed by the Coordinator-General. Advertisement Ms Power allowed Sunday soil trucking because trucks could collect and dump soil at Rocklea in a 22-minute cycle on Sundays, rather than a 50-minute cycle on a weekday. “Because traffic congestion reduces, a spoil haulage vehicle can make between two and five additional trips on a Sunday when compared to a typical weekday,” Ms Power’s report said. “Sunday’s spoil haulage would allow cavern excavation to be completed sooner, mitigating cavern excavation productivity and scheduling risks at the Roma Street and Albert Street Station work sites.” “Importantly, the proposal would also provide a greater opportunity for tunnel spoil to be beneficially reused at other project work sites which would otherwise require reliance on quarried material.” The Clapham Yard, west of Yeerongpilly, is being raised and flood-proofed with soil from the tunnels. Brisbane City Council’s infrastructure committee chair David McLachlan said the decision to allow trucks slammed the brakes on the city’s recovery. Loading Shoppers have not returned to Brisbane’s city heart in great numbers, figures from lord mayor Adrian Schrinner reported to Prime Minister Scott Morrison showed last Friday. “Our research shows the city is just getting back on its feet after being smashed during the pandemic, with workers and visitors steadily returning,” Cr McLachlan said. “Forcing hundreds of trucks on city streets every Sunday for the foreseeable future, on the very day of the week when families like to visit popular sights and people enjoy going shopping, will slam the brakes on that recovery.”
