Archaeology – East Harbour Station

← Return to Early Works: East Harbour Station Draft Report

Key Findings

  • Most of the study area has been cleared of archaeological concerns.
  • Several small areas retain moderate to high archaeological potential, including areas with the potential to uncover 19th century structures and Indigenous artifacts.
  • Where archaeological potential is present and disturbance is anticipated, further archaeological assessment(s) will be completed.

Potential Effects & Mitigation Measures

Potential Effects:

  • Potential for disturbance of deeply buried archaeological resources due to East Harbour Station early works activities.

Mitigation Measures:

  • Complete additional archaeological assessment(s) where required, as early as possible and in advance of any ground disturbance.
  • If archaeological materials are encountered (or suspected) during construction, all work will stop. The site will be protected from impact and additional assessment will be undertaken.
