Souces of Project Support (Non-monetary)

Checkbox Checked Land: The State of Victoria has acquired land for the project at a cost through land acquisition agreements with various land holders as some of the project route is aligned on private property. State legislation provides for compulsory land acquisition for projects of this nature.
Checkbox Checked Access to Land: The State fully leases the project land to the PPP concessionaire for the entire design, construction, operations and maintenance term.
Checkbox Checked Revenue Stream (Cash Flow) Created Through Initial Commitment of Public Sponsor(s): The State of Victoria will make quarterly service payments to the Concessionaire based on road availability and performance against a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) during the operations term. The mechanism provides an incentive for the concessionaire to deliver the service required, consistent with the underlying objective to provide a safe and efficient road link to reduce congestion. If these indicators and availability requirements are not met, the payment reductions will occur. The State will audit the performance and is not required to make any quarterly service payments until the freeway and other project facilities have been certified as being fully constructed according to the project documents.
Checkbox Checked Environmental Clearance: Environmental Sustainability is a project goal for the Peninsula Link. Specifically, the goal is to enhance the environment in relation to the project while adhering to applicable government laws, guidelines, and standards concerning environmental protection, especially those related to noise, water, and air quality. Specific sites of high ecological value required localized realignment of the freeway and particular engineering responses, such as retained earth structures to minimize the construction footprint. In addition one site required particular responses to meet heritage overlay requirements stipulated as part of a heritage permit.
