Chiltern Quarry, Chiltern, VIC
Holcim Australia propose to develop a hard rock quarry off Black Dog Creek Road, Chiltern, Victoria. The Chiltern quarry “Hornfels” aggregate is used through-out the Region, particularly for road construction and maintenance due to its superior skid resistance properties. Demand for the product is sought by State and Local Governments as well as private construction and building companies.
Cooma Road Quarry, Queanbeyan, NSW
Holcim Australia operates Cooma Road Quarry, a hard rock quarry located approximately 6km south of Queanbeyan, New South Wales (NSW). Cooma Road Quarry has been operating at the site since 1959 and is considered a significant regional supplier of granite and dacite hard rock aggregates. Holcim Australia was granted development consent for an extension of the approved quarry life for an additional 20 years and an increased production limit from 1 to 1.5 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa).
Ipswich Precast Concrete Manufacturing Facility, QLD
Humes Ipswich is a state-of-the-art precast concrete manufacturing facility, in the Swanbank Enterprise Park, in Ipswich, South East Queensland. The 14 Ha Greenfield development, 35 km from the Brisbane CBD and 10km from the Ipswich CBD, strategically locates Humes to supply pipe and precast concrete products to the South East Queensland region for many years.

Lynwood Quarry, Marulan, NSW
Lynwood Quarry is a hard rock quarry west of Marulan in the Southern Tablelands Region of New South Wales. The quarry is located in the Goulburn Mulwaree Local Government Area approximately 160 kilometres south west of Sydney and approximately 27 kilometres northeast of Goulburn.
Rockhampton Precast Plant Upgrade, QLD
Holcim Australia completed an upgrade of its Humes Rockhampton pipe and precast manufacturing facility in late 2012.
The upgrade was in response to Central Queensland (CQ) market demand and a commitment to the Australian Industry Participation (AIP) Plan, a concept under the Australian Industry Participation National Framework principles. It also enhanced safety standards, removed lifting capacity constraints and reduced external truck movements.
Rooty Hill Regional Distribution Centre, NSW
The proposed Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) at Rooty Hill will consist of a rail siding where construction materials from quarries are unloaded from trains and transported to enclosed storage bins by conveyor belt.
The materials will be sorted and blended as required by the customer, then loaded into trucks, which carry them to construction sites and concrete plants around Sydney.
