Pinehaven Culvert replacement update

Published on 10 September 2021

Drone short of pinehaven culvert replacement.

As soon as we moved to AL3, Downer (who is managing this work on our behalf) were back at work again and some great progress has been made.

Despite a flash flood event on Tuesday night, the team were still able to install the new sections of culvert on Wednesday and Thursday. Residents and passersby will have noticed the large precast concrete sections of culvert coming in and the crane lifting the sections into place.

There is heavy rain forecast again overnight tonight and the team is busy protecting the site on Sunbrae Drive from more flooding as we have a concrete pour booked in for Monday.

Nearby locals will notice a lot of activity tonight and tomorrow. There will be extra pumps working to keep the site as dry as possible which might be a bit noisier and the team apologises in advance for any disturbance.

Weather events such as the one on Tuesday night and forecast tonight only help to demonstrate how important the new culverts are to improving the water flows on the Pinehaven Stream. For more information about this project, go to the Pinehaven Culverts Replacement project page.
