The Calvert to Kagaru project’s draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) public exhibition closed on Monday 8 March.
During this 79-day period, we undertook a number of activities to support the community and stakeholders in understanding the draft EIS. These included:
- 76 stakeholders made 118 enquiries by email or phone direct to the project team
- Five community information events were held, and a sixth additional session was added in Peak Crossing at the request of the Scenic Rim Community Consultative Committee (SRCCC). 139 people attended the community information sessions.
- Additional meetings were held with residents, landowners, local councils, environment groups and state government agencies to discuss popular EIS topics such as noise, flooding, flora and fauna impacts, Ipswich Boonah Trail and the project’s social impact.
- More than 4,530 letters were sent from to households surrounding the project area, notifying people of the release of the draft EIS
- A Calvert to Kagaru Summary of findings document was distributed at information sessions
- A total of 870 submissions have been made to the Coordinator-General’s office.
Once the Coordinator-General’s office reviews all submissions, the project team will be asked to formally respond to the submissions.
All submission responses will be provided to the Coordinator-General for review and we will provide updates to the community and stakeholders as this phase progresses.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact the project team via email: InlandRailQLD@artc.com.au or 1800 732 761.
