Overview

The South Coast Highway Kojaneerup Project involves the reconstruction of the Kojaneerup Section of the South Coast Highway, between Straight Line Kilometre (SLK) 46.4 and 65.7, generally bound between Cheyne Road (south) and Kojaneerup West Road (north) in the localities of Manypeaks and Green Range, located approximately 40km north-east of the City of Albany. 

The total development envelope is 136 hectares, of which 31 ha is native vegetation that will be removed. Clearing will occur in a long, linear strip generally between 5 and 15 metres adjacent to the South Coast Highway. Vegetation to be cleared includes that considered to be Kwongkan Threatened Ecological Community, Priority Ecological Communities, Priority flora, black cockatoo habitat and areas of Hassell National Park. 

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.
