What's happening

Planning for future access and connectivity

We’re refining the Access Strategy which will consider future access locations and movements, local road connectivity, proposed new service roads and cul-de-sacs, and access and egress for bushfire prone areas.

The highway is being planned as a ‘control of access highway’ meaning access points will be strategically located along the route with no direct driveway access. This will allow for safer and more efficient travel along the highway.

We are currently seeking community feedback on the latest proposed plans and key connections.

We want to hear from you about the Kep Track

We know from our engagement so far on the project that the Kep Track is an important social, environmental and heritage asset for locals and visitors to the region.

We are committed to protecting this asset as much as possible and we want to gather more information from the community about its existing use and functionality, so that the form and location of the track remains sympathetic to its current character and natural surrounds.

Have your say on the Kep Track, and why it's important to you.

Community drop-in sessions

We know that some of you want to hear from the project team and discuss aspects of the Access Strategy and broader project in more detail. We’re planning a series of community drop-in sessions both in-person and online to share information with you.

Preparing for environmental referral

Environmental and engineering-based studies are continuing along the route, collecting information to build an understanding of the environment at a landscape wide level. This information will help us refine a footprint for the highway called ‘the environmental referral boundary’.

Once this area is referred, State and Commonwealth government regulators will determine how the project will be environmentally assessed. There will be an opportunity for community to provide feedback at the time of the environmental referral and on the assessment that follows.
