Great example where upfront transparent stakeholder engagement and out of the box thinking came together for a successful project. This is a project that really focused on the benefits the project would deliver. As part of our corporate submissions, every project is required to provide a detailed environmental impact assessment. Congrats to those involved. Well done!
