Gympie quarry finally set to open

The 540ha Scotchy Pocket quarry in Curra, in the Gympie region of Queensland, is set to begin operations.

The site is expected to produce more than one million tonnes of material annually and be serviced by 200 truck movements a day. Materials extracted from the quarry will be used in or as concrete, sealing agents and ballast.

Gympie Regional Council approved the project in March 2014. A two-year extension on the initial four-year expiry date was granted to Hy-Tec, the developer, in January last year. 

Under the terms of the consent:
• Loading and hauling is approved for 24 hours per day, Monday to Saturday and from 10.00am to 6.00pm on Sunday.
• Extraction work is permitted between 6.00am and 6.00pm from Monday to Saturday.
• Drilling is allowed between 7.00am and 10.00pm Monday to Saturday.

Curra is located at the northern end of the Bruce Highway and has long been considered one of the most treacherous stretches of road in the state. As part of the development, Lindleys Lane is being given a major overhaul. According to the Gympie Times, a Transport and Main Roads spokesman said the work should be finished by March.

Hy-Tec, which is a subsidiary of Adelaide Brighton, was approached for further information but declined to comment.
