This project involved Corridor Analysis to determine the preferred corridor to utilise for future Port access, considering alignment challenges and opportunities, acquisition impacts, connectivity issues, State Development Area needs and construction costings. A Multi Criteria Assessment was used to assist to compare individual corridors and a preferred option was recommended.
TMR then commissioned the development of a Concept Scooping Report to identify design and construction requirement for the preferred corridor and most road alignments within that corridor. A conceptual alignment was developed to assist with this process, identifying alignment requirements, land acquisitions, construction issues and construction costs. The resultant report will be utilised by TMR to brief all of the ongoing elements requiring investigation in later phases of this project.
