The Department of Transport proposes to undertake maintenance and improvement works to the Casuarina Causeway located in Bunbury WA. The proposal includes the refurbishment and realignment of the revetment (including a 0.08 ha increase in the causeway footprint), installation of upgraded services, road works, drainage and landscaping. A multi-purpose building (including ablutions) and fishing/viewing platforms are also included as provisional items.
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.
