Lower Maribyrnong Valley Parklands flood works begin
Friday 13 July, 2012
Flood recovery works to repair the Lower Maribyrnong Valley Parklands and restore access for bike riders and walkers will begin on Monday 16 July. The restoration will include infrastructure and drainage improvements and surface works to the flood damaged path that runs along the banks of the Maribyrnong River.
The $336,000 project is part of the Victorian State Government $19.7 million flood recovery program.
Six of the 11 kilometres of trail is in need of repair. In order to complete the works a section from Brimbank Park to Thompson Street Reserve will be closed. Works are expected to be complete by September.
The works mark the first of two phases of reconstruction in the park.
Stage one works will repair the existing pathway and drainage infrastructure.
Parks Victoria thanks the community for their patience and will return the trail to them as soon as possible.
In the meantime, park users are asked to please respect the closure for their own safety and to let the path recover.
Parks Victoria’s flood recovery team has worked closely with the Wurundjeri Tribe Council in assessing and protecting locations and artefacts.
A team of archaeologists worked with the Wurundjeri Tribe Council to ensure any artefacts were removed and areas affected by the works were carefully managed. A representative from the Wurundjeri will also be on site during this time.
