The $1.75 billion Regional Rail Revival program to upgrade every regional passenger line in Victoria. Ecology and Heritage Partners were contracted to conduct numerous cultural heritage investigations and Cultural Heritage Management Plans (CHMPs) as part of the program.
Each project our team has completed under the program has been characterised by long sections of track (almost 33 km) and multiple activity areas (22 locations). The large number of activity areas and extensive distances to be covered required a high level of project management, and excellent communication between team members, Registered Aboriginal Parties and V/Line staff.
Key cultural heritage works included:
Natural heritage works included extensive flora and fauna assessments, and fauna salvage across large sections of track.
