About Boral Concrete Bringelly
Boral Concrete Bringelly is the newest part of our network of concrete manufacturing facilities in NSW. It began commercial production during June 2020.
Positioned on land adjoining the long-standing PGH (formerly Boral) Brickworks on Greendale Road, the site provides a central point for supply of concrete products into the rapidly changing western and south western Sydney regions.
The plant can produce up to 50000 cubic metres of concrete each year for use in both public and private infrastructure including housing, public buildings, new roads, potential rail links, and the Western Sydney Airport now under construction.
Up to 20 people worked on the site during its construction between July 2019 and June 2020. The operating concrete plant supports three staff on-site, and a further 15 drivers and contractors.
The Boral Concrete Bringelly plant is operated to the terms and conditions of an approval granted by the NSW Land and Environment Court on 26 February 2019.
Camden Council is the relevant authority overseeing the implementation of and compliance with these conditions.

Boral Concrete Bringelly is permitted to produce up to 50000 cubic metres of pre-mixed concrete each year for supply to customers across south western and western Sydney.
The plant’s consent includes restrictions on transport movements related to the operation, both as part of efforts to maintain amenity and safety along Greendale Road, and to reduce overall noise effects from the new operation.
No more than 500 cubic metres of concrete may leave the site per day, and no more than 12 truck loads (agitators) of concrete may be shipped out per hour.
Between 7am and 6pm, no more than two loads (tippers, or truck-and-dogs) of aggregates or one load (tankers) of cement may be delivered to site in any one hour.
There is also a limit on the overall average number of trucks allowed to enter and leave the site each day – 86 truck loads of concrete, 20 of aggregates and seven of cement.
B Double heavy vehicles up to 19 meters in length are permitted to travel between the site and The Northern Road.
The Boral Concrete Bringelly plant incorporates several features designed to reduce any potential effects on the amenity of neighbouring residents and properties.
To reduce noise (and for visual purposes), the site's northern and eastern sides have been lined with vegetated visual bunds.
All loading and unloading activities are conducted inside enclosed structures. A barium-based curtain has been fitted to the loading bay to assist with attenuation.
In addition the slumping stand (where aggregates, cement and water are mixed), often the noisiest part of the concrete manufacturing process, is also enclosed by a structure.
A water storage dam has been constructed which can fill to a usable capacity of 450 000 litres. The dam will reduce the site's need for 'mains' water in a 'dry year' by around 34 percent (68 percent in a 'wet year').
Water from the dam is used for production and environmental management purposes, and on-site amenities.
An Environmental Management Plan (EMP) has been developed to offer guidance on implementing environmental and related obligations.
The EMP establishes the limits for common operational considerations such as noise, air quality (dust), water management and maintaining vegetation.
It also includes mitigation measures and strategies in line with industry operating best practice.
The EMP also captures the range of environmental monitoring and reporting required by the terms of the planning consent, most data from which will be publicly available.

Boral has been present in the Bringelly region for an extended period, a legacy of its former ownership of the brickworks located in Greendale Road. The establishment of the concrete plant renews this association.
Since 2012, Boral has actively supported programs and activities at the Bringelly Public School and the former Bringelly Sports Club.
The school in particular has benefitted from Boral’s corporate partnership with Conservation Volunteers Australia through which several environmental improvements have been undertaken within the grounds.
The school’s Anzac Memorial Wall (2016) was built with materials support from Boral and other partners, while Boral Concrete has also supplied its products to various improvements including storage sheds (2016) over time.
