The project team is dedicated to positive environmental outcomes throughout the design and construction of the project.
Through innovative changes to the original Preferred Plan, the design now demonstrates a reduced footprint of impact, particularly around the Deagon Wetlands and Deagon Racecourse.
Six fauna crossings have been included in the design at key locations along the project corridor to provide safe locations for animals to cross from one side of the motorway to the other. Fauna underpasses and overhead rope ladders will be provided, with the overhead crossings designed specifically for squirrel gliders. Fauna fencing will be also be installed to direct animals to the fauna crossing locations and to prevent them from accessing the motorway.
