Yes or no? Basin flyover (draft) decision for release today

The draft decision on the Basin Bridge flyover proposal is to be released today, five days later than scheduled.

The flyover Board of Inquiry – after 18 weeks of hearings which ended on June 4 – had anticipated releasing the draft report and decision last Friday.

Bur two weeks ago it postponed the anticipated date for the release, with no explanation.

Following release of the draft report and decision, there will be a 20 working day period during which the Minister, submitters and other relevant parties may comment.

The date for the final decision to be provided to the Environmental Protection Authority (already extended by the Minister) remains at 30 August.
