Following a review of Boral Asphalt’s operating sites across the NSW and ACT network, a decision was taken in April 2020 to place the Taree Asphalt plant into ‘care and maintenance’.
Asphalt production at the site will cease for the foreseeable future. Customers will alternatively be supplied via Boral’s operations in Coffs Harbour and Carrington (Newcastle). For orders and other enquiries, please call 02 8801 2000 or send an online request.
As Boral retains ownership of the site, some activity may still be noticed from time to time at the premises.
If Boral wishes to begin local production from the location again in future, notification will provided to the general community beforehand.
Enquiries about the Taree property itself can be directed to 02 4964 3011 or via email.
About Boral Taree Asphalt
The Boral Taree Asphalt Plant began operating during the early 1990s as part of the Bitupave business, following receipt of planning approval from the then Greater Taree City Council in September 1990.
The application for approval was made at a time when the duplication of the Pacific Highway between Hexham (Newcastle) and the Queensland border was a high priority for the NSW Government.
With no asphalt production plant available between Newcastle and Port Macquarie at the time, the Taree site offered a central position from which to supply the once-in-a-generation infrastructure project.
The Pacific Highway was undoubtedly the biggest beneficiary of the asphalt plant's contribution. Significant volumes of material were delivered from the plant to various upgrades and for maintenance along the alignment for more than 25 years.
The plant also supplied numerous local road projects being built or maintained throughout the Council areas of the Mid North Coast.
In April 2020 following a general operational review, the decision was taken to place the site into 'care and maintenance' until further notice.
