Main Roads is seeking to buy portions of land adjacent to State roads for revegetation purposes.
There are a number of upgrades planned for roads, particularly within the Wheatbelt and to a lesser extent, Great Southern regions of WA, which will require the removal of native vegetation that, in some cases, is protected by both State and Commonwealth legislation. The purpose of the land acquisitions and revegetation is to “offset” the future residual loss of this vegetation.
Main Roads is ideally looking for cleared farming land immediately adjoining the road reserves of State roads. The land should be 50 to 100 metres wide and more than one kilometre long and (preferably) linking remnant vegetation. It is intended that any land acquired would be dedicated as a road reserve.
Interested landowners are encouraged to contact Rod Cousins at Main Roads at (08) 9323 4811 or via firstname.lastname@example.org
Further information about the program can be found on the Main Roads website.
