Review of Environmental Factors on Public Exhibition

A REF assesses the potential impacts of a proposal on the surrounding environment and identifies ways to avoid or minimise these impacts. Council has completed a draft Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the GreenWay in-corridor works (upgrades along the light rail line). The main elements are:

  • New public open spaces in the light rail corridor at Lewisham West and near Hercules Street in Dulwich Hill
  • A new accessible shared path and path lighting along the corridor
  • Safer crossings under major roads including tunnels at Longport Street, Davis Street and Constitution Road and underpasses below Parramatta Road and New Canterbury Road
  • Improved natural areas and new ecological restoration areas.

The draft REF finds that the proposal for these works is unlikely to have a significant adverse impact on the environment and that an Environmental Impact Statement is not required. Potential impacts on micro bats have been identified and measures to minimise impacts are proposed.


Review the draft REF. Final day for comments is Monday, 15 March 2021.
