So the end of the Financial Year is upon us and everyone will no doubt be rushing around getting last minute jobs done, but for now, lets just sit back and take a look at what the Depot crew have been doing over the last 5 weeks.

Irwin St, Drainage Works

For a while now the drainage areas were damaged on Irwin Street, so the Shire have replaced and realigned the pipeline which is now working very well.  The new kerbing was also installed to divert water flow down the hill into the drain and prevent washouts into the river, especially through heavy downpours to ensure no flooding of surrounding areas.  Gravel was reinstated for the boat ramp access along with top dressing.  It works a treat, and here are some of the works that were carried out.

Blackwood Avenue footpath, Augusta

The Shire received a customer request from residents in Augusta asking the Shire to look at making improvements to the footpath along Blackwood Avenue.  The height of the kerbing has made it difficult for people to negotiate access on and off the footpath.  Both sides of the intersection (as shown below) have now been upgraded with compliant kerb ramps with further improvements due in the next financial year through this section of footpath.  This now ensures safety for all users of this path.

Leeuwin Road

Further to the roadworks the Shire have been carrying out on Leeuwin Road, Augusta, we have recently completed “backfilling” of the kerbs along the road.  Backfilling is required on roads to ensure the sides of the road do not collapse, and to provide longevity in the side banks of the road.  This also holds kerbs in place and re-enforces the road.  Backfill consists of “clean-fill” or “screened spoil” that is left over from previous works – such as construction of a road.  Basically, this means we have put in clean soil.  Once the vegetation returns, this will further stabilise the area.

Bullant Drive, Forrest Grove

Hello to everyone in Forrest Grove, on Bullant Drive.  So, by now you will have noticed the resheeting that the construction crew recently completed.  Resheeting facts:  Over time unsealed roads will lose gravel and will need placement of additional gravel.  This involves placing an additional 100mm of compacted gravel on top of the existing road.  Drivers are responsible for their own safety and of other users, so remember, always travel to the road conditions.  When motorists travel quickly on unsealed roads this causes surface conditions to change often.  This can create more dust, more potholes and a lot more corrugations.  The pictures below show you the resheeting on Bullant Drive.

Cowaramup Hall

Some of you may not know but the Cowaramup Hall has had its much-needed upgrade and now has the planting upgraded as well.  Below shows the new grass planted along with new trees.

Dump point, Cowaramup

A traveler’s buddy, a dump point located in Cowaramup is now completed.  It is located on Hall Road, so if any visitors ask you if we have a dump point, you can point them in the direction of Hall Road.

Pioneer Park, Cowaramup

Parks & Gardens crew laid new turf around the recently completed toilets at Pioneer Park in Cowaramup.  Our building services team arranged for the completion of these new facilities at the park.  Great team effort everyone.  Having the new accessible toilet facilities will benefit all the Shire along with visitors to the area.

Station Road and Wallcliffe Road carpark

If you haven’t been along Wallcliffe or Station Roads for a while, when you do next, you will see this new carpark on the corner.  Some final touches are to be made such as line marking and trimming recycled water pipes, but once these are completed, there will be some more parking for our town centre.
