Tarralla Creek Trail works

Maroondah City Council is committed to improving safety along the Tarralla Creek Trail where there is limited sight distance between shared path users travelling in opposite directions.

To improve the sight distance at the bend (just south of Raymond Court) to the Australian Standard, Council is proposing to realign the shared path closer to the open drainage channel to the east.

Works, as shown in the figure below, will include:

  • Reconstruction and realignment of the existing asphalt shared path in concrete.
  • Installation of retaining wall in Melbourne Water’s Tarralla Creek embankment and pedestrian fencing.
  • Removal of five (5) trees and offset planting as determined by the planning application process.

Council has endeavored to retain the existing trees and vegetation where possible, to achieve the required sight distance and maintain the required hydrology of the open channel as mandated by Melbourne Water.

Tarralla works

The tree removal permit application (No. M/2017/580) for the five (5) trees detailed above is currently in the advertising stage.

Plans and advertised information for the application are available for viewing online.
