Yan Yean Road Upgrade – Stage 2 EES coming soon

17 August, 2020Yan Yean Road Upgrade


We’re preparing an Environment Effects Statement (EES) for Stage 2 of the Yan Yean Road Upgrade. The EES process examines the potential environmental, social, cultural and economic impacts of the Project and identifies how they will be avoided, mitigated or managed. We’ve carried out a variety of technical studies on these topics to inform the development of the EES and shape the design of the Project.

The EES will soon be on exhibition for public review and comment. Register your interest to be notified when the exhibition commences.

During the exhibition of the EES, the EES Main Report, Technical Appendices, Map Book, Summary Report and the draft Planning Scheme Amendment will be available to the public for a minimum of 30 business days.

This will give you a chance to review the EES documents and have your say though a submission directly to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP). More information on how to make a submission will be available once the exhibition period commences.

Accessing the EES

Given the declared state of disaster in response to the coronavirus pandemic, conventional exhibition of the EES is not possible. In absence of the physical display of printed copies in public places, alternative arrangements are available to ensure appropriate access for any interested person or parties.

All EES documents will be available online on the Yan Yean Road Upgrade project page when the exhibition begins.

We understand that viewing the EES online will not be the best way for some people to access the documents. To ensure we can meet your needs we can provide an EES information pack.

The EES information pack will contain:

  • A USB loaded with the complete EES and key approval documents
  • A printed copy of the EES Summary Report
  • A printed copy of the EES Map Book
  • A printed information sheet on ‘How to Navigate the EES’.

You can register to receive an EES information pack via the form on the EES page.

For those with accessibility issues, to request a hard copy, assistance or more information in accessing the EES documentation, please contact us on 1800 105 105 or email contact@roadprojects.vic.gov.au.
