Arborists abound at Seaford
30 Apr 2018
You are right to notice Seaford Road is abuzz with action, as works to remove the level crossing shift into gear.
A substantial amount of vegetation removal has been required at this site. While we don’t like removing trees, the temporary track we’re building will help to minimise disruption to passengers on the Frankston line while we work at Seaford Road.
One of our ecologists, Dan, was on site this week to inspect vegetation for the presence of any fauna, including possums, microbats and native birds.
Where possible, our ecologists safely relocate possums into nearby parkland with the aid of nest boxes which can also be used to house other fauna including bats and birds.
Our ecologists have also so far collected more than 3,000 seed samples for propagating and future replanting in the area.
