Ward McDowall
Project outcome The aim of the project is to repair damage at the landfill remediation site within Raven Street Reserve.
Latest update Construction to begin in June 2015

About the project

Following the numerous storm events since the completion of the landfill remediation works in June 2014, the landfill remediation site needs to be repaired.

Project benefits

The project will involve installing additional rock chutes to stabilise the creek bank and bed, remediation of the eroded creek banks and reinstalling irrigation and landscaping.

Impacts during construction

The majority of construction activities will be carried out between 7am and 5pm Monday to Saturday. 

The construction impacts associated with these works include:

  • additional truck movements along Hamilton Road where some delays may be experienced as trucks enter and leave the site
  • properties in close proximity to the work may experience some dust, construction noise and low levels of vibration however; Council will endeavour to keep this disturbance to a minimum where possible
  • environmental mitigation measures such as erosion control and dust suppression will be used on site where necessary
  • due to workplace health and safety requirements reversing beepers cannot be switched off.

The fence currently around the project area will remain in place until the new landscaping has established.

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work. Advance notification of particularly noisy works or major access changes will be provided to properties within the works area.
