Ecological assessment for a 3.8 km upgrade to the Mount Lindesay Highway
E2M conducted a detailed ecological assessment in accordance with the Project’s Terms of Reference, issued by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads. The ecological assessment included targeted threatened fauna and flora surveys, vegetation mapping and assessment against Commonwealth and State legislative requirements. Field assessments included a combination of in-field ecological surveys combined with remote cameras and acoustic recorders to effectively survey potentially occurring threatened species and meet survey requirements.
The project traversed two riparian corridors connecting adjacent areas of habitat for a number of threatened fauna. E2M provided recommendations on fauna sensitive infrastructure design to minimise potential impacts to fauna movement corridors.
