Options Selection – Current Phase
The purpose of Phase 2, Options Selection is firstly to identify constraints to the development of the project followed by the development and assessment of feasible alternatives and options in order to determine the preferred transport solution for the project.
Phase 2 commenced in Q2 2021 and is scheduled to be completed in Q3 2023. As part of Phase 2, the first non-statutory public consultation on ‘Constraints’ took place between 04 May 2021 and 01 June 2021. The second non-statutory public consultation on ‘Alternatives and Options” took place between 03 May 2022 and 20 May 2022. All potential solutions that were presented to the public are being assessed through a two-stage comparative assessment of their potential impacts, and their relative success in achieving the project objectives to determine the preferred solution for the project. The preferred solution is scheduled to be put on Public Display in Q2 2023.
