NSW Grain Freight network review

image

The purpose of this review was to examine the grain freight supply chains and identify the most sustainable long term solution for moving grain efficiently from farmer to domestic customer or port for export.

The team undertook a quantitative and qualitative analysis which included: an examination of factors likely to impact on the future supply and demand for NSW grains; an assessment of the implications of changes in grain industry structure and the lessons from deregulation in other jurisdictions; a Benefit Cost Analysis and sensitivity testing of three options for the future of the branch line network; an analysis of the policy and regulatory context; and analysing input from Task Force  meetings, consultations and submissions.   The team also widely consulted stakeholders through a Call for Submissions to the review and a series of meetings held with grain producers and local government representatives in the three main grain growing regions of NSW.

Highlands Source Project

image

The Highlands Source project was initiated during a time of severe drought and is a major initiative designed to secure water supply to Goulburn, in the southern highlands of New South Wales. It involved linking Goulburn to Wingecarribee Reservoir, which is part of the Sydney Catchment Authority’s network of dams. The project involved tight timeframes and funding constraints which drove efficient and innovative approaches.

An extensive community and stakeholder engagement program was implemented as part of the project, which involved construction of an 80 km pipeline through 145 individual properties.

Decentralised Water Master Plan - New South Wales, Australia

image

The City of Sydney's decentralised Water Master Plan investigated opportunities to reduce Sydney's dependency on the drinking water supply through targeted water efficiency and use of alternative sources for non-drinking purposes. It also included a comprehensive assessment of opportunities to improve the stormwater system and reduce discharge of pollution to Sydney Harbour, Cooks River and Centennial Park.

Spatial technology was utilised to analyse extensive volumes of baseline data across the Local Government Area (LGA), including the central business district. This enabled GHD to map the distribution of high water users and pollution hotspots and to identify geographic relationships between water efficiency, alternative water sources and water sensitive urban design opportunities, at sub-catchment, catchment and LGA scales.

NRM Practice Change

image

Much of the investment in Natural Resource Management (NRM) in Australia is targeted towards fostering changes in land management practices. There is therefore value in developing tools and resources that will help regional NRM bodies and other investors to understand the people whose practices they are seeking to change and hence, how that change can best be fostered.

The "Making Successful Investments in NRM Practice Change" project was a four year action learning project, with the project team from GHD working in close collaboration with staff from ten regional NRM bodies across Australia.

Water Quality Risk Assessment

image

GHD conducted an environmental risk assessment, using the Australian Standard Risk Assessment Framework to assess the risks posed by treated effluent discharges into a major river in Sydney. In this assessment, we developed maximum discharge criteria, acceptable to regulators. The outcome of the risk assessment was to create new discharge criteria for the releases into the river, based on the likely concentration of specific contaminants, the current concentrations of the same contaminant in the river, likely scenarios of mixing, and potential ‘hazard quotient’ of those mixed concentrations.

Swansea Bridge Cathodic Protection Work

image

Swansea Bridge at Lake Macquarie in New South Wales is an opening bridge to allow vessels to pass underneath and was constructed in the mid 1980’s. Since then, harsh marine exposure conditions had resulted in corrosion and bridge deterioration. A solution was needed to increase the longevity of the bridge.

Working with the Roads and Traffic Authority NSW (RTA), GHD helped develop a long-term, environmentally-sustainable durability solution to be adopted  which would increase the bridge’s longevity plus minimise community disturbance and achieve best value for money outcomes.

Sydney Primary Loop

image

Jemena’s Sydney Primary Loop (SPL) is a 29km DN500 pipeline which runs through south western suburbs of Sydney from a connection to an existing section of the DN550 primary loop pipeline at Casula and ties in into the existing DN550 primary main pipeline at Marrickville.  The SPL pipeline connects two major Jemena Gas Networks primary mains, thus enabling continuity and reliability of gas supply if the supply on either is interrupted.  The SPL pipeline also provides further opportunity for development of the gas distribution network in Sydney area.

The facilities and stations on the SPL pipeline include Automatic Line Break (ALB) main line valve stations, a Primary Regulator Station (PRS) at Moorebank and a Trunk Receiving Station (TRS) at West Hoxton.  GHD was selected by Jemena to undertake engineering design and construction support for the pipeline and associated stations.
