Project background 

As the river flows through the metropolitan area, it is fed by stormwater runoff from the surrounding suburbs, as well as contaminants from urban areas, affecting the stability of river banks and obstructing flow.

Project detail

Works undertaken included:

  • debris and unstable soil removed
  • some vegetation removed to ensure bank stability and safety of workers and the community
  • installation of concrete pins and rock revetment wall (a landscaped rock wall that steps back into the eroded embankment area) that appeals to the natural surroundings and supports the riverbank through any future high water events

The shared use path remained open during remediation works.
