Reconstruction of Important Drainage Watercourse

Due to severe dilapidation to a section of Brownhill Creek at Ashford and the risk this posed to adjacent residential property, the City of West Torrens engaged Southfront to design a solution to remediate and realign this part of the creek.

Southfront’s detailed design included hydraulic investigations to develop a solution that would replace the old brick wall and realign the creek channel away from private property. The outcome is a long-term solution on one side of the creek, with Gabions designed to secure the bank resting against residential properties, and a demountable modular block solution on the opposite side that wll allow for any future widening of the creek channel or major capacity upgrade works. Prospect Contractors demonstrating their expertise in Gabion construction installed the 150m3 wall.
