The planners at AECOM state, “the intent of this assessment approach is to demonstrate compliance of the Project with the relevant assessment benchmarks based on the greatest foreseeable extent of impact. In the instance that the finalised construction methodology differs from what is assessed in this report, TMR will consult with the assessment manager and referral agency to determine and agree the appropriate approach for
modification (i.e. generally in accordance or a change application)”.

“It is the role of the assessment manager to ensure development applications for prescribed tidal work are sound, in accordance with the design, construction and safety provisions outlined in the Schedule
3, Part 3 of the Coastal Regulation. This development application is being lodged with concept design drawings for the temporary components. This is necessary to enable the compressed delivery timeframes for this upgrade of critical transport infrastructure to be achieved (construction to be ready
to commence in early 2022)”.

Government Funding
– $112 million from the State Government
– $112 million from the Federal Government
