As Victoria’s environmental regulator, EPA advises Rail Projects Victoria (RPV) on: 

  • contaminated soil management 
  • air quality 
  • water and groundwater management 
  • noise mitigation measures. 

Find out about the Environment Effects Statement (EES) process for the Metro Tunnel project 

EPA provides technical and regulatory advice to the Metro Tunnel Project (the project). Our advice helps the project comply with their environmental obligations. We encourage the project to use best practice and reduce the risk of harm to human health and the environment. 

More about the EES process

The Minister for Planning required the Environmental Effects Statement (EES) process. The EES assessed the project’s potential environmental, social, economic and planning impacts. It provided an approach to manage these impacts. The EES documentation is available from Metro Tunnel.
