Public Environmental Review - Keane Road Strategic Link, Forrestdale

Closed 3 Feb 2014

Opened 9 Dec 2013

Overview

Keane Road is an existing dedicated road reserve located approximately 20 km southeast of Perth and approximately 7 km northwest of Armadale Strategic Regional Centre. The dedicated road reserve for Keane Road connecting the rapidly urbanising areas of Harrisdale, Piara Waters and Forrestdale is made up of three distinct portions: two parts are constructed or are in construction under current approvals and the third central portion, which is subject to the PER is currently unconstructed.
 
The City of Armadale is proposing to modify the existing allocated road reserve alignment to minimise the clearing impacts of road construction works associated with construction of the final 1.5 km of Keane Road. These road works require the clearing of 1.65 ha of native vegetation to accommodate the road pavement, dual use pathway and road drainage swales.

Why We Are Consulting

A Public Environmental Review (PER) has been prepared by the City to examine the environmental effects associated with the proposed road, in accordance with Western Australian Government procedures. The PER describes the proposal, examines the likely environmental effects and the proposed environmental management procedures.

The proposed action has also been separately referred under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) and the Commonwealth will assess the proposed road works as a controlled action through submission of preliminary documentation.
