For your wrap-up task this week, we want you to head to page 5 of your Memobook and outline your recommendations for the next phase of the civil construction and design process.
To help you do this, you will want to refer to this map provided by ARTC and page 23-26 of this preliminary report.
Step 1 -
Identify at least 5 key observations about the proposed Toowoomba tunnel alignment, drawing on either your own research or the report 📒 provided. You may want to hone in on issues like:
- Changes in elevation
- The presence of groundwater/floodplains
- Vulnerable ecosystems
- Existing local and regional land use
Step 2 -
Address each of your identified issues in turn. Consider whether/how these issues might be solved or mitigated by the design team. 💡
Step 3 -
Make a recommendation as to the viability of the proposed alignment 🧐
