What is a Comprehensive Impact Statement?

A CIS is a process to assess the anticipated impacts of the project and examine options for avoiding, managing and mitigating any negative impacts. The CIS aims to provide the Minister for Planning with the necessary information to determine whether the project should be approved under the Major Transport Projects Facilitation Act 2009.

It describes the Reference Project for the East West Link and presents the findings of the specialist impact assessments in accordance with Section 39 of the Act and the Scoping Directions issued by the Minister for Planning. It also identifies performance requirements and obligations that would be placed on the contractors delivering the project.
