The Gateway Upgrade North project includes a two-lane widening (to six lanes) of the existing 11.3-km motorway from Nudgee to Deagon and a six-lane bridge across the Brisbane River. The project is targeting an ‘excellent’ Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) rating.
Edge’s sustainability support to the GUN project includes:
- Gap analysis between ISCA rating tools v1.1 and v1.2.
- Support with ISCA resourcing credits submission (Energy, Water and Material assessment for the current design compared to Business as Usual).
- Independent sustainability advice for all ISCA credits.
On top of the final rating, the ISCA process participates in identifying opportunities to reduce energy, water and material use and the overall project footprint.
