Your environment, your say

The Environment Effects Statement (EES) for Stage 2 of the Yan Yean Road Upgrade is now on public exhibition. The EES examines the potential impacts the road upgrade could have on the environment and identifies how the project plans to avoid, reduce and manage those impacts.

The EES is made up of:

  • technical appendices
  • a map book containing current design drawings, plans showing land required and no-go zones for protected vegetation along the road
