Opened 17 Dec 2019

Overview

Main Road WA proposes to construct and operate 5 km of duel carriageway around the City of Albany to allow heavy freight vehicles to bypass local traffic to access the Port of Albany.

The proposal involves clearing of 11.6 ha of native vegetation and 8.6 ha of non-native vegetation within a 96 ha development envelope.

Why We Are Consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What Happens Next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
