Environmental and site investigations continue to occur during reference design stage as we consult with property owners, councils and other key stakeholders. Our ongoing investigations include:

  • geotechnical and ecological studies
  • flooding and hydrology studies
  • noise, air quality and vibration surveys
  • social and heritage surveys

Environment planning and approvals

In early 2019 we submitted an Initial Advice Statement to the Office of the Coordinator-General seeking the Kagaru to Acacia Ridge and Bromelton project be declared a ‘coordinated project’ under the State Development and Public Works Organisation Act 1971. A declaration would have required an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to be prepared. The Coordinator-General has since decided not to declare the project a ‘coordinated project’.

During the past two years, we have undertaken studies equivalent to an EIS. We presented the preliminary results of the environmental investigations to the community in late 2020.

We will now work with the Department of Transport and Main Roads to determine the approvals pathway for the project. This will also identify if additional investigations are required.

Once the approvals pathway has been confirmed, we will share this information with the community via local media, our website and the project’s electronic newsletter.

We remain committed to working closely and collaboratively with our key stakeholders and local communities involved in the project.
