April 2015 Site Progress Notes
Reptile monitoring in flood compensation area.
Stock proof fencing installed to south end of scheme.
Temporary access route from site to the park and ride compound completed.
As the Busway is constructed through a flood plain, it displaces some water retention capacity. We will retain the capacity by excavating a shallow basin within the flood plain called a Flood Compensation Area and removing the material. The FCA will be completed along with the embankment construction to maintain this capacity as construction progresses. Before this area can be excavated, an environmental survey of the area was carried out.
