Transurban builds and manages toll roads in Australia and North America. Transurban is an Australian company committed to taking a sustainable approach to all of its operations, projects and business practices to create the best outcomes for its government clients and the communities in which it serves.
Established in 2014, the partnership between Transurban and Landcare Australia helps Transurban deliver its community investment strategy to strengthen and benefit communities near their roads.
To date, Transurban has funded four major regeneration projects in partnership with Landcare Australia. These projects aim to improve native habitat, engage local communities and improve the visual amenity of areas adjacent to vital transport corridors in major cities. The results of these projects are now providing great benefits for local wildlife and ecosystems.
The Monash Freeway Upgrade (MFU) project was delivered in 2018, with the City of Greater Dandenong being awarded a Landcare grant from MFU to regenerate a section of Dandenong Creek adjacent to project site.
In 2017 Landcare Australia delivered the CityLink Tulla Widening Urban Landcare Project in Melbourne and the M2 Macquarie Park Motorscapes Project in Sydney with ongoing involvement in the maintenance and monitoring of both sites. Landcare Australia was also involved in the successful regeneration of Melbourne’s Power Street Loop in 2016.
