The project is made up of four works packages: two of which are in the detailed design stage, and two in reference design stage.
During the reference design stage, our team is undertaking investigations and field studies and consulting with communities and stakeholders to determine the preferred design for the works required.
The work packages of the crossing loop at Daroobalgie and track lowering at Wyndham Avenue road bridge are in detailed design stage. Our team is continuing its investigations and consulting with communities and stakeholders to finalise the design.
We have carried out field studies to gain an understanding of the environmental features, technical challenges and opportunities, including:
- geotechnical studies
- ecology studies
- cultural heritage surveys
Landowners, councils, agencies and local community groups have also provided invaluable feedback that assists us in developing our design options.
When the reference designs are complete the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) will be reviewed and recommended for approval by an ARTC Environmental Manager, and then determined by an authorised ARTC Manager under the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act) and the ARTC Code of Practice.
The environmental approvals required for the project is expected to be determined by a REF.
