EMM is proud to be playing a role in the planning and delivery of WestConnex, Australia’s largest road infrastructure project.

Our Planning Services Manager, David Kelly, is currently seconded into the WestConnex Delivery Authority to manage the preparation of the Environmental Impact Study of the Stage 1 – M4 East component of the project.

David is working with a broader project team to ensure delivery of a robust and rigourous environmental assessment.

Our Senior Environmental Engineer, Nicole Hansen has been recently seconded into the WestConnex team to help develop and deliver the project’s: environmental and sustainability policy; environmental management systems (EMS); and environmental approvals.
