We’re back! hi everyone.  The Depot have started construction season along with our maintenance and parks and gardens works so we’d like to tell you what we are up to.

Its Lavender time

Landscape Works Opposite TAFE

Some well needed landscaping across the road from TAFE along Bussell Highway.  This has enhanced the entry from the southern end of our town, along with improving safety on market days, no verge parking.  Thanks to the Parks & Gardens crew.  Here is the before picture and all the after planting pictures:

Rotary Park – Stage One

Landscaping works has commenced at Rotary Park.  The 1st stage of works for this financial year includes planting out the verge.  This was planned to make our park more inviting and to enhance the entry into Margs.  Planting will proceed when stock is available.

Wallcliffe Road Cycle Path

So many of us enjoy walking and bike riding to the coast.  So, we are giving the cycle path along Wallcliffe Road a facelift.  Works involved are to improve “sight lines”, in other words, make it safer for all users – pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.  A small refuge island will also be installed.  These pictures show set up and works being carried out.

Warner Glen Road – drainage works

The drainage crew recently started works on Warner Glen Road for improvements to drainage issues which abuts to the southern approach of the main bridge.  Here are some snap shots we’ve taken of the “items” used – culverts and pipes.

Rehabilitation planting in Cowaramup

During the cooler months this year we carried out rehabilitation planting in Cowaramup.  Here are before and after shots.  With 12,000 tube stock used to plant in Symphony Waters and Cowaramup Country there will be some wonderful trees in years to come.

Dressing up a lifeless area – Blackbutt Trail and Willow Lane

Ever wondered where the storm damage goes that we clear away every winter?  Well, here it is, mulched and used to dress up some tired spots around town.  Take a look at Blackbutt Trial and Willow Lane, looks much nicer.

Flinders Bay Caravan Park – beach access

The pathway that leads to the beach from Flinders Bay Caravan Park had eroded, so it was time for some rehabilitation works.  We closed off the pathway while works were carried out and here is the result, a much safer access to all.Flinders Bay Caravan Park access to beach rehabilitationWalk way to beach from Flinders Bay caravan park, eroded

Fun fact:

Turning an illegal dumping area back into a Reserve – now that’s got to be a fun fact!

Our crew recently cleared and burnt off an illegal dumping ground out Jindong Treeton way.  This has been rejuvenated back into a Reserve which is growing wildflowers and new bushes, thanks everyone.

Hope you enjoy, catch you all next month from the Works Depot.
