The landscape scope, while limited in some areas, has played a vital role in ensuring the development fits in and blends with the existing community and ensures a celebrated asset for time to come. Key road crossings are celebrated as ‘gateways’ to the municipality, with bright and cheerful colour sections being incorporated to strengthen the idea of the gateway. Plantings across the project are endemic to the locale and will form strong visual blocks across the otherwise flat and vacant landscape of the western plains.

Forming part of the State Government Regional Rail Link project, Package E (West Werribee to Deer Park) takes in 25kms of new rail which winds its way through Greenfield and existing residential communities and crosses several existing road and waterways.
Two new stations located at Wyndham Vale and Tarneit, will form central community hubs which further retail and residential development will extend from as the communities grow. Urban elements such as noise walls, and screening features have a considered design approach, drawing from the locale in relation to colour, texture and form, introducing everlasting and iconic elements into the community.
