The Gawler East Link Road (GELR) project involves the construction of transport infrastructure for the trownship of Gawler and surrounds.  In addition to road building and widening activities, two bridges will be built over the South Para River and a tributory of this river; both include habitat of EPBC-listed species.  Succession Ecology have been involved with this project since 2018.

Our services include:

  • Advice on road pathway for protection of EPBC-listed species, Flinders Ranges Worm Lizard
  • Fauna Management Plan
  • Weed, Pest and Disease Management Plan
  • Water Quality Monitoring Program
  • Weed map and management schedule
  • Environmental induction information, including weed guides
  • Ongoing weed control activities
  • Ensuring compliance and reporting standards are met

A Successional Approach

Our unique approach to revegetation involves a ‘ground up’ methodology, which floods a site with seeds of native colonising species. The use of colonising species provides rapid site stabilisation and initiates the process of recovery to build ecosystem function. These species add organic carbon to the soil, attract invertebrates, deposit seed, compete with weeds and provide cover. Colonising species in the arid zone can reproduce within 6–8 weeks of rainfall, bolstering the seedbank. These attributes provide a great catalyst for building ecosystems in the arid zone.
