Boral Concrete Bringelly
The Bringelly Concrete operation will be Boral's newest concrete batching plant in the NSW/ACT network. Construction on the new site began during mid-2019.
Please note this plant will not be open to the public once completed. All sales and product enquiries may only be directed to 1300 552 555, or you can send an online request.

Boral Concrete Bringelly is the newest part of our network of concrete manufacturing facilities across Sydney and NSW. Construction of the site, our first new concrete operation in the state for over a decade, is underway, with production expected to commence during the first quarter of 2020.
Positioned on land adjoining the long-standing PGH (formerly Boral) Brickworks on Greendale Road, the site was selected as a central point from which to supply concrete products to the rapidly changing western and south western Sydney regions.
Once operational, the plant will produce up to 50000 cubic metres of concrete each year for use in both public and private infrastructure including housing, public buildings, new roads and potential rail, and the ‘in progress’ Western Sydney Airport.
Up to 20 people are working on the site during construction. Once operations commence, the concrete plant will support three local jobs on-site, and a further 15 drivers and contractors.
Construction (Dec 2019)
Work on the new Boral Concrete Bringelly plant is now well advanced. The program has involved the preparation of the greenfield site, as well as the erection of the plant itself and ancillary buildings and structures.
Major earthworks to accommodate the new plant were completed earlier in the year, including the cutting into the site’s slope to create the floor level upon which the plant now sits.
Five metre high bunds at the front and side of the site for visual and noise management purposes are now in place and will soon be revegetated. An irrigation system has been installed to keep the future plantings hydrated via the site's new stormwater dam.
The dam has a usable capacity of up to 450 000 litres and will reduce the site's need for 'mains' water in a 'dry year' by around 34 percent (68 percent in a 'wet year'). It will supply the plant with its water needs for both production and environmental management.
The second phase of construction is now well underway and involves the pouring of concrete across the site, including for hard stand areas and the footings of the new plant. During each concrete pouring day, up to 25 agitators have been delivering concrete to the site.
Up to 20 semi-trailers have also brought structural steel to the site for use in setting up the silos, stands, conveyors, pipes and enclosures which make up the plant.
The plant's silos were lifted into place during mid-November, as were the materials conveyors and other elevated components.
The finishing touches to the plant, including complete connection to utilities, landscaping, signage, and linemarking will be carried out throughout January. We are on track to ‘open the gates’ for first production in late February 2020.
The hours during which construction works can take place are 7am-6pm Mondays to Fridays, and 8am-1pm on Saturdays. No work is allowed on Sundays or during Public Holidays.
We remain very keen to hear from local residents at all times about any concerns they might have with the works, or any feedback, suggestions or comments.
You can call the Project Manager on 0401 896 590 or our Stakeholder Relations Manager on 0401 894 097. You can also send an email.
Once operational, the Boral Concrete Bringelly plant will be operated to the terms and conditions of an approval granted by the NSW Land and Environment Court on 26 February 2019.
To learn what happens at a typical Boral Concrete operation, you can visit our About Concrete page.
Boral Concrete Bringelly will be 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 site will operate from 7am-10pm Mondays to Saturdays, and 8am-10pm on Sundays and Public Holidays. No deliveries of materials will be permitted after 6pm on any day.
All loading and unloading activities are to be conducted inside enclosed structures. An example of this is slumping – the mixing of aggregates, cement and water which is often the noisiest part of the concrete manufacturing process.
An Environmental Management Plan (EMP) is required to be developed for the site before it begins operating. The EMP will 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.
The new plant’s consent also includes restrictions on transport movements related to the new 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. No ‘B Double’ vehicles may visit the site until the approval of Greendale Road as a designated ‘B Double’ route.

In the Community
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 new concrete plant renews the association.
During the past decade, Boral has actively supported programs and activities at the Bringelly Public School and 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.
