These Field Guides apply to road related works and activities within significant roadside environments identified by the Regional Roadside Environment Marker Scheme (Hunter and Central Coast). The Field Guides provide directions on work practices to be implemented at these sites to avoid damaging environmental values and to reduce the risk of impacting threatened species and communities protected by Commonwealth and State legislation.

A total of 9 codes and associated field guides addressing a suite of ecological values and management issues have been developed. These include:

  • Wetlands A1
  • Water Crossings A2
  • Amphibians A3
