Existing highly reactive ground conditions lead to a full redesign & reconstruction of the Melbourne Water waterway running through the Rosewood Estate.


Complete reconstruction of the existing waterway.  Intricate works that required management of continuously flowing active waterway, bulk excavation & reshaping of alignment, extensive stabilising of onsite highly reactive clays using both Gypsum & Lime stabilising techniques.  Project delivery also required construction of rock beaching, weir walls, shared paths & solar lighting to meet client’s, council’s & Melbourne Waters expectations.
