About the project

A fishing platform will be installed where Bulimba Creek flows through Carmichael Park. The six metre by three metre platform will cater approximately 10 people, and provides fish-cleaning facilities.

Impacts during construction

Work is expected to begin in mid-May 2018, with completion anticipated by the end of June 2018, weather and tidal conditions permitting. Works will take place from Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm. However, work outside these hours may be necessary.

During construction, nearby residents may experience temporary inconveniences including:

  • short-term access restrictions at the rear of the sports fields to allow for piling operations and for the delivery of materials
  • temporary access restrictions within the unpaved car park
  • temporary delays along Boundary Street, for the delivery of site equipment, which will be managed through traffic controllers
  • tree clearing within the construction site
  • noise from machinery
  • dust from the works.

Every effort will be made to minimise the impacts from construction works.

Project benefits

This fishing platform will provide new leisure opportunities and enhance access for residents to our natural environment.

Brisbane is a great place to live, work and relax, and Council is committed to creating more lifestyle and leisure opportunities for residents and visitors to enjoy.
