[Extract] The ACTFR was requested by Sinclair Knight Merz on behalf of Rockwell Australia Ltd to undertake a brief assessment of the flora and fauna values of a proposed High Frequency receiving station facility and access road (hereafter the facility and road).

The facility is located approximately 50 km north-west of Townsville on the Hervey Range Developmental Road within the Department of Defence's Townsville Field Training Area. It will be constructed on a low 335m feature on the eastern side of Keel bottom Creek and between Speed Creek and the disused Greenvale Branch Railway. The facility will cover an area 600 m in diameter and require the excavation of a small I 70x I 70 m borrow pit and the construction of a gravel perimeter road and a 1 km sealed access road from the facility to the Speed Creek Stockyards. Six antennas and a compound will be constructed within the facility area and it is the ACTFR's understanding that, apart from the road and borrow pit, only the vegetation under these seven areas that requires removal.
