An Environmental Effects Statement (EES) was prepared by the Southern and Eastern Integrated Transport Authority (now known as Linking Melbourne Authority) prior to the commencement of Peninsula Link. The EES assisted the project in identifying key environmental issues.
The operations phase of the project operates under Lendlease’s Environmental Management Plan which complies with ISO 14001 and sits under the Lendlease Group environmental policy.
Lendlease will continue the detailed monitoring and reporting of critical fauna and flora established in habitats along the freeway reserve. Lendlease has engaged independent ecological specialists to undertake this monitoring on our behalf and will report the findings throughout the contract period.
