Sugarloaf pipeline landslide risk management and planning approvals



The Sugarloaf Pipeline Project was a major infrastructure project completed in early 2010. The project required planning approval at all three levels of government including a Landslide Risk Management Plan. The Project Landslide Risk Management Plan was completed in accordance with AGS 2007. This paper discusses how the AGS guidelines were applied on this project including discussion on the risk assessment process, mitigation measures adopted and lessons learnt.
