Brentwood Park – Stormwater Retarding Basin

Council will be constructing a stormwater retarding basin in Brentwood Park, Croydon. The proposed retarding basin will capture stormwater during larger storm events and will help reduce potential flooding within the surrounding area.

These works will involve the construction of new drainage as well as the excavation of soil from the existing levelled grass area in the south-west corner of the reserve. This area is located to the south of Yallambee Way and to the rear of Kincumber Drive and Mandowie Crescent properties. The base of the basin will be approximately 110 x 24 metres and will be at a depth of 2.9 metres.

Following the works, and re-establishment of the grass, the basin will still be accessible by park users with sufficient area within the basin for recreational activities such as informal soccer kick around for which the area has previously been used.

Works are scheduled to commence on Monday 14 November 2016. It is anticipated that the works will be completed in approximately fourteen (14) weeks, subject to weather conditions.

Access to the site for trucks will be via Lincoln Road. The main excavation component of the works is scheduled to start on 23 November and will continue for four weeks, subject to weather conditions.

To facilitate a safe working environment for the public and the contractors, it is necessary to implement appropriate traffic controls as works progress. It is anticipated that delays will occur throughout the works, however the contractor will endeavour to minimise these delays as much as possible.
