Environmental site management
Environmental management is integral to good project management. It must consider each element of the environment - biodiversity, cultural heritage, land, water and the impacts of noise and air quality on the community.
Planning and investigations undertaken as part of VicRoads pre-construction activities will identify the various environmental sensitivities that are associated with the proposed works. They will also assess the risks, formulate objectives and develop contracts to address the expectations.
The following video shows how VicRoads is building sustainability into our road network to continue to provide the important benefits of transport while minimising impacts on our environment and communities.
Further information on specific aspects of site environmental management are detailed on the pages in the rest of this section.
