Visiting the quarry

Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen, Minister for Public Works and Procurement and Member for Springwood Hon Mick de Brenni spent time on site in late 2023 to find out more about the quarry extension. The Minister was interested to see that about 3,300 native trees and shrubs have already been planted on site as part of the Stage 1 extension and that this will increase to more than 32,000 over the life of the extension project.
