‘Excellent’ for commuters, locals and the environment
03 Jun 2019
Three Level Crossing Removal Project projects have received excellent sustainability rating from the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia.
The Camp Road, Campbellfield, Skye–Overton Road, Frankston and Frankston Station projects received ‘Excellent’ ratings based on a range of factors, including energy efficiency, climate change risk mitigation and stakeholder engagement.
The projects were delivered by the North Western Program Alliance, who are now removing the Reservoir level crossing with this same commitment to sustainability. Some of these initiatives include:
- biodiesel generators and solar lighting used on site during construction.
The new Reservoir Station will include:
- rainwater recycling facilities
- urban design features for passive irrigation and improve runoff water quality.
The project is also partnering with the University of Melbourne and Sustainability Victoria to trial the use of recycled glass in concrete. The glass would be used instead of sand and would find a new use for recycled glass that is stockpiled in recycling centres across Victoria.
