Civil works almost complete at Arnolds Creek
After just one year, it is great to see the end of the major construction works which will finish in early May 2020.
Our construction contractors, Safety Focused Performance (SFP), who have delivered this project on our behalf will continue with minor work in the area, while internal Delivery will start planting along Arnolds Creek from May.
Once the planting is finished, we expect the area to be opened to the general public in late July/August 2020.
The urban landscaping features implemented from your ideas and daylighting of the creek are complete including:
- the creation of the central zone with shelter and education areas, tables and seating
- footpaths and walkways throughout the creek
- the removal of the above ground concrete channel and Cambrian Way concrete drain
- increased plants and greenery.
A feature of the rejuvenated open space is the community meeting place along with new footpaths and walking trails connecting the community to schools, shops and the neighbourhood.
We are also planning to plant more than 200,000 native trees and shrubs within the new creek bed and open space, that will soon be ready for local residents to experience.
