Our work on the Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing Level Crossing Removal

Ecodynamics was engaged by Wamarra as part of the Western Program Alliance to help with the landscaping works for Old Geelong Road Level Crossing. The Western Program Alliance, as part of the Hoppers Crossing Level Crossing Removal plan, stated a requirement that for each tree removed, two would be planted in it’s place. To do this we needed to involved our Ecodynamics Nursery to help propagated the plants, shrubs and grasses required for this Hoppers Crossing Level Crossing removal plan.

Our Nursery propagated and grew plants for the Hoppers Crossing Level Crossing Removal.

The plants propagated and grown were native shrubs and grasses to fill the outskirts of the Hoppers Crossings Station upgrade. Our Nursery grew essentially all plants used and outsourced Swale as all hybrids. We landscaped new plaza spaces at both ends of the pedestrian overpass with a variety of native and exotic plant species such as Lomandra, Poa and Carex. These plants were chosen to use in the landscaping plan due to their drought tolerance and to maintain the aesthetic of the local area.

Our scope:

  • Freeway landscape work
  • 90,000 plants (majority from Ecodynamics Nursery)
  • 200 advanced trees
  • 20,000 m2 mulch
  • 10,000 m2 bluestone mulch
  • 4 hectors of native grasses – client Flora Vic
  • Woody Meadow Project
