Work on Beechmont Road sometimes requires the removal of some vegetation. Work to repair the section between Tarlington Road and Mirani Street in 2012-13 included removing 23 mature and 6 seedling Queensland nut (Macadamia integrifolia). Wild M.integrifolia are listed as vulnerable under the federal Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. To help mitigate the effects of removing this protected vegetation, the Department of Defence provided a suitable site for translocation and management of the impacted plants.
The translocation plan (PDF, 1.71 MB) is available for information.
This project was assessed as a 'controlled action' under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The Department of Transport and Main Roads is required to prepare an annual compliance report every 12 month anniversary of the commencement of the action. These documents provide detail as to the actions undertaken by the department in meeting that compliance.

The Toowoomba Bypass (known during construction as the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing project) opened in September 2019. It is a 41km bypass to the north of Toowoomba in inland southern Queensland.
The annual compliance report is prepared in accordance with approval condition 10 of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) referral determination (EPBC 2003/1143) for the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing. The report outlines the currently employed measures and evidence to demonstrate compliance with each of the referral determination conditions.
