About the project
The objectives of this project are to reduce localised flooding, provide conditions for healthier street trees, and improve traffic flow and safety of residents and other road users.
The existing street trees close to the drainage channel have adversely affected the surrounding road and drainage infrastructure. The tree roots have lifted the road pavement, kerbs and channels, which in turn has resulted in localised water ponding and in some locations, flooding of properties.
The proposal involves re-positioning drainage channels so that they are not affected by tree roots, and forming tree pits to permit healthy development of existing trees. Some street trees, which are in poor health, will be removed and replaced with suitable new trees.
The works will also enable the buses to fully pull up to the kerb, improving traffic movement through the street.
Project site plan
The project is split into 8 key sections. These are:
Properties 2 to 15 and 14 to 20
Properties 15 to 23 and 22 to 36
Properties 29 to 39 and 40 to 48

What will it look like?
The artist impression above show the proposed works will:
- retain parking
- add new drainage pits
- expand tree pits to protect roots and retain run-off from the street
- add new bluestone edge strip
- add new concrete spoon drain
- extend driveways in concrete.
