Doing business with Transport

    We want the process of doing business with Transport for NSW to be consistent and efficient.

    At Transport for NSW (TfNSW), we work closely with the private sector, industry organisations and advocacy bodies to deliver safe, reliable and innovative transport systems across our networks. 

    Establishing and maintaining effective and mutually beneficial relationships with our stakeholders is vital as we plan, build and manage the delivery of the largest transport infrastructure program in Australian history. 

    We want the process of doing business with us to be consistent and efficient and have implemented streamlined systems, processes and policies to make this happen.

    Environmental Protection Licenses

    In accordance with the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (POEO Act), an Environment Protection Licence (EPL) must be obtained from the NSW Environment Protection Authority for certain TfNSW projects. The EPL is held by TfNSW, the appointed construction contractor, or an alliance partner.

    Transport for NSW Environmental Protection License

    If you are the holder of the EPL for a TfNSW project, we require you to publish pollution monitoring data on your website in compliance with Section 66(6)(a) of the POEO Act. You are also required to prepare and implement a Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP).

    Out-of-hours work

    We need your help to minimise the impact of our projects on local communities.

    If you need to carry out work outside of the standard working hours in the Conditions of Approval for your project you will need to have that work approved by TfNSW, other relevant authorities and/or the project’s Environmental Management Representative.

    You will also need to notify the local community in advance.

    All applications to undertake out-of-hours work must include an outline of what measures will be implemented to reduce the impacts on the local community.
