Our winning design for the North East Link Project detailed an extensive Blue Green Infrastructure Plan. In collaboration with a specialist team, T.C.L instigated world-class sustainable initiatives to support and improve blue and green infrastructure throughout the project. These initiatives included; two for one tree replacements, a 300% increase in water quality (compared to the reference design) and daylighting the Koonung Creek, from highly-polluted stormwater pipe to biodiverse habitat and vibrant public open space.
In consultation with Wurundjeri (Woi-Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation), three core pillars – Connection to Country, Caring for Country, and Connecting People – guided the project and team approach. Through applying these core pillars to the Blue Green Infrastructure Plan, the team sought to create an enduring legacy for the North East Link.
