Peninsula Link: case study

All road projects have environmental challenges, however Peninsula Link is particularly complex in that the environmental approvals for the project include conditions that extend beyond the expected range. The implementation of the approval conditions for the project requires co-operation from a number of Victorian Government agencies and a whole-of-government approach in order to meet the long term obligations. For example, to successfully deliver one key environmental obligation, (the protection of the Southern Brown Bandicoot within the Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve), the co-operation of Parks Victoria (PV) as the land manager, the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) as the responsible agency for wildlife in Victoria, together with Linking Melbourne Authority as the road developer. The tight timeframes for the project have added to the complexity of many of the environmental approvals. During the bid phase, several government agencies were involved during the development of tenders and their assessment in order to streamline the process for meeting environmental approval obligations.
