EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
In accordance with Development Consent Condition 5.4(b)(i), the THMS is being carried out in accordance with the Department of Urban Affairs and Planning’s draft “Route Selection” guidelines (the Guidelines). The Guidelines provide an integrated framework for the assessment of road transport routes for the transportation of hazardous materials.

Preparation of the Project THMS has commenced.. The identification and assessment of suitable and preferred routes for the transport of hazardous materials to the Project has included the factors listed below:

· The road hierarchy and Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) designated truck routes.· Mandatory factors, including:· Subjective factors including:· Road and traffic factors such as accident statistics, length of potential transport routes and availability of alternative emergency transport routes.· Emergency response capability.· Operational factors such as logistical considerations and operating costs.· Risk level for each potential transport route determined in accordance with the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Natural Resources’ Hazardous Industry Planning and Advisory Paper No. 8, Guidelines for Hazard Analysis (HIPAP No. 6). In addition, risk management measures to be implemented to ensure that appropriate levels of risk are maintained for the transport of hazardous materials to the Project were also identified for each hazardous material.

The THMS is being prepared on behalf of Barrick by its’ consultants Resource Strategies and Pinnacle Risk Management. Pinnacle Risk Management has specific relevant experience and expertise with the Guidelines and HIPAP No. 6. The purpose of this letter is to seek your comments in relation to the proposed transport route.

Hazardous Materials to be Transported through Hurstville Local Government Area to the Cowal Gold Project

It is presently proposed that the following hazardous materials would be transported through the Hurstville Local Government Area (LGA) to the Project:

· Caustic soda; and
· Hydrogen peroxide.

Suitable and Preferred Transport Route/s through Hurstville Local Government Area

Following an assessment of potential available routes in accordance with the Guidelines, the following route has been identified as suitable for the transport of hazardous materials and is the preferred route for the transport of caustic soda and hydrogen peroxide to the Project:

· Enter the Hurstville LGA travelling west on Stoney Creek Road.· Turn right onto King Georges Road.· Exit the Hurstville LGA travelling north on King Georges Road.

If you have any comments in relation to the proposed transport route or wish to provide any additional information that Council believes is relevant to the THMS, please send the comments or information to me by email (dblaxland@barrick.com.au), or post (PO Box 210, West Wyalong, NSW, 271) by 14 October, 2005.”

The proposed route along Stoney Creek Road and King Georges Road are designated State Roads under the care and control of the Roads and Traffic Authority, however, any accident or emergency along these roads could have significant impact on surrounding neighbourhoods.

There are four (4) Schools along this route, being Kingsgrove Public School, Arkana College, Beverly Hills Public School and Beverly Hills Girls’ High School, as well as aged care facilities. Although no details have been given to Council concerning travel times, I would strongly suggest that they be outside of School hours and under strict traffic control.

I would recommend that council objects to the proposed route as outlined in their letter based on the close proximity to schools, aged care facilities and surrounding residents pending further information in relation to travel times and methods of traffic control.

RECOMMENDATION
THAT the matter be considered by Council.
