Hexham , New South Wales
We are the next door neighbours to Aurizon Hexham train support facility.
We have owned our property for over thirty years.
We believed we would be safe from industrial activity because we were surrounded by “protected wetlands” and now the proposed extensions will encroach more on our “protected environment”.
We have experienced a higher degree of effect from drainage placed by Aurizon, water is now stopped from flowing away quickly. Water lays for longer periods, more drainage for more construction will only impact our paddocks and our access more than before.
We were greatly impacted when Aurizon did the original buildings and road constructions.
We will once again be impacted by noise and delays on our travel if construction does go ahead.
We are often woken through the night when train drivers sound their horns and this noise can continue for quite some time, this noise will only increase if expansion of facility is allowed.
We are on a very low flat landscape and the activity from Aurizon if allowed to expand will only increase the level of noise generated to our property. It is now at times unbearable increasing activity is not acceptable.
Progress, industrialisation should not be permitted at the great cost to our native environment. Future major flooding is a great concern as we know from our experiences from flooding since the original site was developed and approved.
If we are already effected, how much worse will it be for the animals and birds of the swamp. Our beautiful eagles and other birds of prey will not nest . The vibrations caused from trains idling all day and night will surely impact on turtles and other ground dwelling inhabitants.
NO to a bigger facility.
Question? Did Aurizon meet all requirements originally to offset SEP14 land taken for their fuel depot - will they be installing an even larger fuel depot? Have Dept. of Planning and Environment continued to monitor impact of present facility on our environment?

TARRO , New South Wales
I am very concerned about the project not being shown prior to now and only because Dept of Planning advised of this project by Aurizon. Why has it been kept secret till now, when the time is almost up? There are no details of whether the height of the land is going to be higher than ground level, my property has not been shown any affects in regard to flooding. The Aurizon access road will be moved closer to my home, when the M1 Freeway extension happens and there is no detail for noise control around the road off the Tarro Interchange when that happens, especially with the very large volume of extra traffic entering/exiting the site.

It should be investigated why Aurizon have said they have consulted with locals, as this is not the case.
