This project has involved the restoration of Bangula Creek in Normanville as part of a housing development. The job has many factors to consider, such as the safety of local children once the estate is populated with respect to steep creek banks, erosion control due to under cutting from lack of vegetation and the amenity of retaining a vestige of natural appeal to the creek
Bulk and detailed earthworks methods are being used to cut back batters to safe grades so that 150 tonnes of quarry rock and water direction alterations can occur. Subsequent jute matting and planting will occur later in the project in order to stabilise the batters and provide the intended feel for the area.
The construction of a nature trail through the creekside reserve will complement the 4,500 plants being installed alongside the preserved existing vegetation.
