I object to this project as there would be problems with safety, navigation on site and parking. There are already current issues with big vehicles and trucks visiting the property area when loading and unloading. They are blocking the way and have cause problems with entering/exiting the site. There has also been a number of car accidents in relation to this as well. With the warehouse coming in, there would be more trucks and heavily vehicles visiting the premises regularly and will cause more problems with the currently existing ones. The Woolworths vehicles seem to be a big trucks and there would also be problems with parking on site and can cause problems for parking for the other properties. There would also be a number of safety issues involved. Please stop this project in moving forward.

I live St Hilliers Road and my house fronts this major road and sandwich between Rawson road and Hall Street Junction . When the project is completed, the operation will 24/7 and I will be subjected to noise and air pollution especially now include weekends . The vehicles will be trailers and with traffic lights in Rawson Road and Hall Street, the noise will be louder and increase in pollution due to vehicle braking and accelerating.
Developers cannot have everything in their favour. It is not a same status quote. They will operate during weekends and 7 days every night and will disturb the sleep of residential house facing the main road. I strongly object as they will infringe the peace during my sleep unless they can demonstrate that they have not increase the noise, its level and pollution onto the residents or they will not be using St Hilliers Road in their distribution runs or put noise and pollution mitigation measures

Thank you for requesting WaterNSW's comments on the EIS for the proposed Woolworths Warehouse and Distribution Centre Auburn (SSD 10470). Please note that as the subject site is not located in close proximity to any WaterNSW land or assets, and as an SSD any flood works or licensing approvals will be assessed by others, the risk to water quality is considered to be low and WaterNSW has no comments or particular requirements.

Whilst I appreciate that we live in a fabulous divided Industrial, residential area and feel that this is what makes Marrickville/ Newtown unique, I am extremely concerned about the trucks and the night time noise for us. We ask that all trucks enter and exit via Bedwin Rd and Sydney Steel rd. This would take truck noise away from the residents and mean that we can sleep at night, we are already inundated with 4am truck noise due to the neighboring development.

We are running a mechanic repair workshop opposite to this development site. As trucks and vehicles will be driving through Hall and Percy Street at all time.
Please kindly ensure full access for Hall and Percy Street while under construction of the warehouse. Thank you.

Dear Ania,

Please see the attached comments from the NSW EPA for your consideration. The EPA does not appear to be the ARA for POEO matters, however comments have been provided in relation to contaminated land matters noting that the site was notified under the Contaminated Land Management 1997 earlier this year.

Kind regards

The main concerns and issues I have with the proposal is how much vehicle (including heavy vehicle) traffic and noise this will mean for nearby properties and during what times (during construction and during ongoing operation of the warehouse)? I do not want heavy vehicle noise (or any loud noises from the warehouse) during the night/early morning times when people are sleeping. I am very concerned if the warehouse is going to be operating 24 hours/7 days a week. What safeguards will there be to avoid this? I am also concerned with the extra pollution this will bring to households with the extra traffic to and from the site. Does the warehouse have to be opened 24/7?
I'll appreciate answers and solutions to my concerns when you have considered them.
