Controlled Blasting

Consult the controlled blasting fact sheet (2MB)

Controlled blasting will be used to excavate the lift access shaft at the Victoria Cross north site on the corner of Miller and McLaren Streets. This method will reduce the impacts of excavation on the surrounding community. 

When will controlled blasting start?

JHCPBG is proposing to do two small trial blasts in September/October 2018.

How many blasts will occur?

There will be four or five additional blasts between October 2018 and January 2019.
