I REFER to your article on sand drift (Councils slam summer dust, WA Business News July 3).
A photograph accompanying the article was of an item of plant belonging to our company.
We would like to assure all concerned that Works Infrastructure is renowned for our proactive approach to environmental issues such as sand drift.
Works Infrastructure is a contractor to land developers, local governments and State government departments. We have a strong presence in the Mandurah, Rockingham, Wanneroo and many other councils.
Our works programs are prepared especially to counteract issues such as sand drift.
Included in that approach are linkages with the local community to the point that we provide a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week contact number for inquiries. Maintaining good community relations is a priority.
Our experience is that by keeping local communities informed they understand the scope and likely impact of a project, thus ensuring any potential disruption is minimised.
Works Infrastructure strives to meet and exceed the standards of environmental management procedures.
The environmental system at Works Infrastructure is in accordance with ISO 14001. Works is currently seeking certification to this standard.
We applaud the focus of the original article on environmental issues of land development and hope that the Works Infrastructure commitment to such activities is clarified.
