[Extract] The South Pacific Pipeline Company is proposing to establish a gas pipeline from Papua New Guinea to Gladstone, Queensland. If constructed, this pipeline will cross over 2,400 watercourses and wetlands. These watercourses and wetlands represent special habitats and warrant more detailed consideration and planning in order to reduce the impact of the pipeline upon them. The aim of this study was to develop solutions that are both ecologically sound, and practical in engineering and rehabilitation terms, for a selected range of watercourses and wetlands. For each watercourse, attention was paid to the following five points: 1 - basis for selection in this study 2 - the engineering solution 3 - erosion control systems 4 - revegetation strategy 5 - location of access tracks to the pipeline crossing points on each watercourse
