More consultation   

  • We’ll engage and consult residents and businesses on a number of our Better Local Roads projects.
  • We’ll provide feedback opportunities and encourage you to have your say about these and other infrastructure projects on the Creating Cardinia community engagement platform.

Environmental sustainability

The Better Local Roads Program has been developed in line with our Sustainable Environment Policy.

To help the environment, we:

  • use recycled materials such as crushed glass and rubber
  • consider the use of wildlife sensitive lighting where possible.
  • carry out full biodiversity and cultural heritage studies wherever possible before building new roads.
  • work with arborists, and environmental and indigenous groups when planning the Better Local Roads Projects.
  • have developed comprehensive Tree Removal Guidelines which allow for removal of trees to be minimised, while considering safety, design and community needs.
  • follow any necessary removal with a revegetation plan in accordance with our guidelines.
