On 25 September 2018, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to ACCIONA Infrastructure Australia Pty Ltd (Acciona) for failing to implement adequate management measures to prevent or minimise vehicles tracking sediment on to public roads. Acciona, acting as the principal civil works contractor on the CBD and South East Light Rail project, failed to implement the required management measures at the Moore Park West compound (compound). As a result, sediment was observed tracked from the compound on to Anzac Parade, and accumulated in the storm water management system, potentially presenting a risk to both the environment and the safety of motorists. This sediment tracking was observed during inspections undertaken by the Department on 13 and 20 June 2018. Since identifying the issue, Acciona has implemented additional management measures to prevent and minimise sediment tracking from the compound. The Department will continue to monitor the compound to ensure those management measures are well maintained.
