Client: Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR)
New Ground was engaged by DTMR to undertake an ecological site assessment within the Tamborine Oxenford Road road reserve. The objectives of the project included:
- Present the findings from a desktop and literature review of the ecological values of the site;
- Describe and map vegetation communities and ecological features within the site that are regulated under relevant local, state and Commonwealth legislation; and
- Provide considerations with respect to ecological values within the site to inform detailed project design works, operational works planning and impact mitigation.
The project was delivered ahead of schedule and New Ground assisted DTMR in managing risk to the project by clearly articulating the nature of ecological features within the disturbance footprint and suggested approaches to mitigating impacts upon these features.
