HUNTER EXPRESSWAY F3 TO BRANXTON
Planning and assessment for 38 km of new road through sensitive environment Analysis to minimise visual impacts, avoid disturbance to aboriginal sites, reduce impact on sensitive Sugarloaf Range and to highlight significant richly varied natural and cultural environments.
The landscape and urban design solutions evolved from a thorough analysis of the physical and spatial qualities of the site, and the cultural context. Detailed conceptual analysis of the landscape included visual catchments, spatial qualities of the landscape and topographical assessment including drainage lines, major ridgelines, drainage lines and flood constraints.
The urban design reinforces the visual sequencing of the road corridor by creating a series of integrated portal bridge effects and treatments that reinforce the environmental attributes of the sites and local cultural opportunities.
