About Newcombe Road Sand

The consent application was submitted by RS Sand which is owned by industry leader, Stevenson Aggregates.

A division of Fulton Hogan, Stevenson delivers superior aggregates and concrete sand through its many successful quarry operations. Throughout the past 100 years, Stevenson has built itself a culture of loyalty, determination and strong community relationships.

Eventually, Newcombe Road Sand will replace several sand quarries that are coming to the end of their operational lives. The new quarry is estimated to have a life of 25 years and will employ up to ten team members to run operations and produce the projected 400,000 tonnes of sand each year.

At present, a 4-hectare wet-processing area has been identified with the remaining 27-hectares to be quarried under a staged approach.
