Benefits to the Community

The aim of this project is to renew culvert structure and provide protection from erosion of the road at this location.

What to Expect

  • Extension of the downstream (south side) triple culverts 1500mm diameter by 2.0 metres long (see approximate extension on attached map), including installation of a new headwall, rock beaching and minor vegetation removal.
  • Construction of a temporary dam on the downstream end of Wreck Creek, whilst culvert extension works are being undertaken. This will ensure that the existing water ponding will remain and ensure environmental flows and conditions are maintained.
  • For safety reasons, this will be a construction zone. Appropriate and approved traffic/pedestrian measures will be in place throughout the duration of the works. All appropriate works approvals and permits have been approved from the relevant agencies.
  • The use of heavy plant and machinery including noisy and vibration works such as earthworks, saw cutting and use of trucks/crane for delivering concrete/culverts to site.
  • We appreciate that these works may present an inconvenience to nearby properties and we have asked for their patience during these times. Our contractor will make every effort to minimise disruptions during construction. Road users may experience minor delays and may wish to seek alternate routes during the construction period or plan your trip accordingly. As always, emergency vehicle access to properties will be maintained at all times.
