Yes, they still get rock out of the quarry, in fact the Boral website says it is "one of Melbourne's main sources of hard rock material, used to make basic building and construction materials like concrete and asphalt."

Having read through some of the stuff on Boral's website, and the Bill going through Parliament as Andrew posted links to, the most interesting thing seems to be what happens after the quarry ceases operations (and goes back to being Crown Land as prescribed in the Act). The Community Info Sheet (see below) makes mention of the return of 8 hecatres of flat land for recreational use, the map shows the area borders on Wellington Road.
