Peninsula Development Road Upgrade – Department of Transport and Main Roads

Biotropica Australia works within a multi-disciplinary team to assist in the assessment of the ecology existing within and adjacent to the Peninsula Development Road in Cape York. Biotropica are currently undertaking a strategic environmental assessment of approximately 200km of the PDR to advise Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) of the environmental opportunities and constraints in each location.  Biotropica are involved in a range of activities for TMR, including Environmental Scoping Reports, Review of Environmental Factors, specialist fauna habitat and botany surveys, and assessment of responsibilities under national and State environmental legislation (Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act self-assessment and Nature Conservation Act clearing permits).
