The Project is currently at Phase 3 Design and Environmental Evaluation. The purpose of this phase is to develop the design of the Preferred Transport Solution identified in Phase 2 and undertake an environmental evaluation of the design to a sufficient level of detail to establish landtake requirements and to progress the project through the statutory process.
The Preferred Transport Solution was on Public Display in May 2022. A copy of all of the display material presented is available here. Following the conclusion of Public Display No. 3, the design team are finalising the Option Selection Report and it is due to be published in Q4 2022.
As part of the Design and Environmental Evaluation stage of the project a number of field surveys, including environmental, topographical and hydrographical surveys will be undertaken in the coming months within an area which includes, but is not limited to, the corridor for the road component for the Preferred Transport Solution.
