Minister responding: Hon R. Saffioti
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

ORRONG ROAD — UPGRADE

630. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:

On behalf of local concerned residents, I refer to the proposed upgrade of Orrong Road between Great Eastern Highway and Leach Highway.

(1) How many trees will be removed to facilitate each option of the proposed upgrade?

(2) Given the trees along the strip proposed for upgrade provide a key eco-corridor for wildlife and provide a critical urban tree canopy to mitigate the urban heat island effect, can the minister guarantee that any trees removed will be replaced?

(3) Will any established trees not marked for retention be relocated?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided by the Minister for Transport.

(1)–(3) Further detailed work will be required to make this determination as part of any future project investigation.
