The Second Creek Outfall and Linear Park Path Upgrade improved important stormwater and civil infrastructure for the benefit of the environment and community.
The Second Creek Outfall and Linear Park Path Upgrade compliments a $38.4 million program to upgrade the City’s stormwater drainage network over the next 15 years.
Second Creek runs through the following six suburbs within the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters:
- St Peters
- College Park
Second Creek’s stormwater outlet discharges into the River Torrens at St Peters.
Works for this project included:
- improved gross pollutant collection
- safer access for maintenance vehicles to collect debris
- installation of new 21 metre bridge
- installation of new 30 metre boardwalk along Linear Park
- new retaining wall along Linear Park
- widened path to 3.5 metre along Linear Park
- native landscaped area off Torrens Road.
The Department of Environment and Water (Green Adelaide) in partnership with the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, have a joint program to improve the quality of urban stormwater discharging into rivers and the sea.
In 2012, a condition assessment and performance review of the GPTs, located at the outlet of Second Creek and on the River Torrens at St Peters, determined that there was a need for ongoing maintenance.
In 2017, this assessment was downgraded and it was determined that there needed to be improved GPT infrastructure.
