Project area

The CSIRO Highett site is located in the suburb of Highett, 16km south-east of Melbourne CBD. The site is approximately 9.5 hectares in size and is bordered by residential properties along Graham Road, Middleton Road and a shopping centre and apartments to the north of the site.

The site clean-up and demolition project will include the removal of all buildings within the CSIRO Highett site and the safe removal of hazardous materials.

The project will be completed in two stages to minimise the impact on the local community. The map below shows the boundary of the CSIRO Highett site and the two stages of works.
