From the 32 meters (105 feet) high tower one operator with electronic and visual aids at his command has push button control over the dust suppression system. He is in constant contact with all parts of the site and can check the movement of materials on CCTV, using a mimic panel he can select the direction and control the flow of the materials through the terminal.

Information on weather conditions, noise levels, and dust sample readings are continuously relayed to the tower from four environmental stations which are located in the surrounding district.
