The Battams Road Linear Park Bank Remediation involves on-site recovery of the eroded riverbank along the River Torrens near the corner Battams Road & Ninth Avenue, Royston Park.
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.
Work being undertaken includes:
The shared use path will remain open during remediation works.
The Contractor will begin removing reeds in the area beginning 30 January 2023 to commence the rectification works. The project will require the removal of four trees to make the area safe.
