As a recognised leader in this speciality area, Greg has worked on the flooding aspects of a variety of linear infrastructure projects such as highway, motorway, rail and tunnel flood immunity, at stages from route selection and concept design through to detailed design. He was the flooding lead on the Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway Upgrade EIS.
