These activities will continue progressively across the whole project corridor over the coming months.

Activities will include:

- Demolishing buildings using specialist licensed contractors and removal of asbestos from any buildings prior to their demolition by specialist licensed contractors (where required).
- Temporary lane closures under the guidance of traffic control officers where work may be close to roads.

The removal of trees and vegetation will be carried out in accordance the project permit conditions and draft Koala Management Plan. The project team will also be using qualified fauna spotter/catchers to manage any wildlife found prior to the removal of vegetation.
