NorthConnex Air Quality Community Consultative Committee

NorthConnex has established the Air Quality Community Consultative Committee (AQCCC) to provide input into the location of air quality monitoring locations and advice on related air quality matters.

The committee was established in mid 2017 and will operate for a period of up to two years from the opening of NorthConnex in 2020.

The committee comprises three local community representatives, representatives of each local council, Roads and Maritime Services and the tunnel operator, NorthConnex Company Pty Ltd. 

The project has appointed an independent chairperson in consultation with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.

The selection process to appoint community members was undertaken in accordance with the project’s Conditions of Approval, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s Community Consultative Committee Guidelines and the community representative application pack. A probity consultant, and independent chair approved by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment were involved in the selection of community members.

As part of the Conditions of Approval for NorthConnex, the project must establish a minimum of six air quality monitors; two near each ventilation outlet, one along Pennant Hills Road and one ambient air quality reference. These monitors must be in operation 12 months before tunnel operation and remain for at least two years after tunnel opening.

In addition, NorthConnex established five air monitoring stations within the project corridor in late 2013 to inform the comprehensive air quality assessment carried out for the Environmental Impact Statement and the Submissions and Preferred Infrastructure Report. These stations recorded weather data and ambient background air quality levels as well as air quality near Pennant Hills Road. These stations are no longer required and were removed mid 2015 because future monitoring stations have beenestablished as per the Conditions of Approval and in consultation with the AQCCC.

This is standard practice for tunnel projects.
