Appin Road Underpasses on Public Exhibition

Lendlease is working with the NSW Government to improve safety along Appin Road for motorists and wildlife.

As part of the Government’s planned safety upgrade between Mount Gilead and Ambarvale, Lendlease proposes to construct two wildlife underpasses and additional fauna fencing to increase protection for the local koala population, and has submitted an Addendum Review of Environmental Factors for the proposal. The public exhibition is being managed by Transport for NSW and is open until 13 December 2022.

Key features of the Addendum Review of Environmental Factors include:

- A northern koala underpass which connects Noorumba Reserve to Glen Lorne Reserve.

- An interim southern koala underpass which connects Beulah to Browns Bush Reserve.

- Monitoring technology of the koala underpasses to provide information on their use and effectiveness.

- Fauna fencing at Noorumba Reserve and Beulah Reserve and the length of Appin Road between Mount Gilead and Ambarvale.

Subject to planning approval, Lendlease will commence construction in 2023.

Lendlease is committed to funding and delivering a permanent Beulah underpass as part of our Mount Gilead Planning Agreement with the Planning Minister. This underpass will require detailed design and environmental assessments and does not form part of the addendum currently open for public exhibition.
