Seymour Whyte Constructions for Townsville City Council

Summary

Environment North worked with Flanagan Consulting Group and Biotropica Australia to provide ecological connectivity advice to the design and construct (D&C) team for a new arterial road through a bushland / future urban area north of Townsville City.

The project required integration with adjacent approved master planned areas and Council’s previously established biodiversity corridors.

We obtained all environmental approvals and provided advice on design matters and construction management.
