Olsen Road site development for truck staging

The Proposed Project 

Tyam Excavating and Shoring Ltd., working on behalf of Prudential Transportation Ltd., proposes to prepare a currently vacant site measuring approximately 37,000 square metres, to enable use for trucking operations and container storage. Proposed works include vegetation removal, site excavation, site grading, and sand and gravel placement to prepare the site for these operations. 

Approximately 15,000 square metres of the site currently has vegetation cover, this is proposed to be stripped and removed with the exception of setback areas near knotweed management zones and along the property boundary. Excavation of this area is proposed to a maximum depth of 1.5 metres, not disturbing native soils. Sand and gravel is proposed to backfill the excavated area and be graded throughout the site. During construction, it is estimated that 40 trucks per day will visit the site. There is sufficient space within the site to stage trucks as they await loading or dumping time, therefore no offsite staging is proposed on Olsen Road. 

Once site preparation work is complete, the site will be operated by Prudential Transportation Ltd. Operations will consist of commercial truck and trailer parking and repair, containerized cargo storage, and steel storage. It is estimated that between 20 and 65 trucks will frequent the site per day.
