The CityLink Tulla Widening project is committed to leaving the local environment in better shape than when works began, and being a good neighbour to the communities we work in.
A big part of this commitment is to complete the project as sustainably as possible, and we're doing our best to work with local community groups to identify opportunities where we can give back to the environment.
As part of this pledge, we'll be planting around 320,000 trees and shrubs along the corridor to both replace and enhance Melbourne's green spaces. We'll be nurturing any new plants for two years after the project is complete to ensure they adapt to their environment and continue to thrive for years to come.
We've also launched a number of other initiatives to improve the health and quality of life for local communities and environments along the project corridor.
CityLink Tulla Widening Urban Landcare project
The project has teamed up with Landcare Australia to identify and develop two sites in need of environmental rehabilitation.
CityLink Tulla Widening sustainability grants program
Local communities can launch or progress initiatives aimed at improving the health and wellbeing, and social inclusion in their area through our grants program.
Gowrie Victoria Broadmeadows Valley Children's Program
Trees that have been removed as part of the Mickleham Road upgrade have been given a second life in a children's garden, creating innovative play spaces and landscaping features.
