Notice of Blasting Operations at Hammonds Plains Road

(Tuesday, May 5, 2009) - This is to inform residents, business owners and property owners that blasting operations are required to complete rock excavation as part of a road upgrade project at Hammonds Plains Road between Innovation Dr and Bluewater Road.. ACL Construction Ltd has obtained a permit to carry out the blasting. Blasting will start on or about Wednesday, May 6, 2009 for approximately 10 weeks. Operations can take place Monday to Friday, from 8am to 6pm. No blasting will take place on weekends or statutory holidays.

Pre-blast inspections on structures within the pre-blast radius, as outlined in by-law B-600, have been carried out. Also, residents, business owners and property owners within a 300m radius of the construction site have been given notification of the operations. All requirements outlined in the blasting by-law have been met in order to have a permit issued for this project. Seismographs will be set up on structures in the area to monitor vibration and sound levels to ensure they do not exceed allowable limits set out in HRM’s blasting by-law.
