Community

Nexus is dedicated to creating a greater connection with the community.

To do this, we’ll keep stakeholder groups, landholders, businesses and government authorities informed as the project progresses.

We’ll also ensure the community is aware of construction activities ahead of time and every effort will be made to minimise construction impacts.

To keep up to date with the project’s progress, you can register to receive regular project updates by email using the stay connected form.
