We are thrilled to announce that the Archerfield Wetlands Shared Path project has been selected as a finalist for the Civil Contractors Federation (QLD), 2022 Earth Awards.
The Archerfield Wetlands Shared Path is one of six priority projects identified in the Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan. Once an industrial precinct, a site for wastewater treatment and waste disposal, and a source of pollution for Oxley Creek, Archerfield Wetlands is being rehabilitated into an environmental asset and a recreational destination.
The 3km long path runs between Gleneagles Crescent, Oxley, and Bowhill Road, Durack and was constructed with a combination of gravel and broom finished concrete, included are four culvert waterway crossings. A short 450m, walking trail accessed from the shared path, provides access along the edge of the wetlands to an open water viewing and picnic area known as the Wetlands Lookout.
Project Manager, Jose Nazareno said “The Archerfield Wetlands Shared Path was constructed to benefit the community and local wetland environment and is aligned with Abergeldie’s core mission to build better communities. We are proud to have delivered this project on time, on budget and within stringent environmental controls despite significant wet weather events causing flooding across the project site”.
The awards will be presented on Friday, 19 August at the 2022 Excellence in Civil Construction Awards which will be held at the Sofitel Brisbane.
