c) Prevent contaminated water leaving the site.
d) Include the revegetation of disturbed areas in accordance with the Specification.

Noise Levels

The Supplier will ensure that State and Local Regulations are complied with in regard to noise levels produced by their own or their Sub-Supplier’s equipment or methods of construction.The Supplier will notify Optus of potentially noisy out-of-hours works (eg, crane lift, road works,etc.). The Supplier will minimise noise disturbance and only carry out the works required to be done out-of-hours.

Dust Control


The Supplier will take all necessary steps to limit the creation of any dust nuisance which might arise during the execution of the Works to the satisfaction of the Local Authorities and the Site Provider. If necessary, the Supplier will regularly water all access tracks and construction areas.
