Macedon area Harvest & Haulage operations in Railway plantation.

HVP wishes to advise local residents that winter harvesting operations are commencing again in the Railway pine plantations, located between Macedon and Woodend east of Black Forest Drive.

Harvesting operations are expected occur from July to December. Harvesting and delivery contractors have been instructed to minimise as far as is practical the impacts on local residents.

Residents are advised that log trucks will be using local roads including Canning Park Road, Centre Road and several other feeder roads in and around the pine plantations.

 

Centre Road and Scout Camp Road will be closed for public safety.

 

Due care should be exercised at points of truck access from the plantation on to local roads. Please observe all safety signs.

Your safety is important to us.

Felling and processing trees and loading trucks are hazardous activities. Large machinery is involved and the ability of operators to hear and see beyond the immediate area of operations is often restricted. Remaining trees can be de-stabilised and may fall or drop branches unexpectedly. We have a duty of care for all workers and visitors to our plantations. For these reasons:

PUBLIC ACCESS TO HARVESTING SITES IS RESTRICTED FOR THE DURATION OF THE OPERATION.
