Gardiners Creek widening

We have completed a project to widen Gardiners Creek, between Burke Road and Tooronga Road. The project increased the level of flood protection for local properties and the community in high rainfall events. Approximately 9 Olympic swimming pools of soil were removed from the area to allow the creek to hold more water.

The project started in November 2013 and was completed in June 2014.
