Comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement

As part of the planning for the first stage of light rail (Gungahlin to Civic) a comprehensive Environment Impact Statement  (EIS) was prepared. In accordance with the Scoping Document issued by the Environment and Light RailPlanning Directorate, the EIS presented a description of the project, alternatives considered, and a detailed assessment of potential impacts with proposed mitigation measures. The EIS was used as a key assessment tool and also recommended key considerations for subsequent development applications lodged for the project.
