Marigold Culvert

Reunion Parade Culvert Earthworks Complete!

The Marigold Construction Team are pleased to announce that earthworks on the culvert are complete!
Marigold’s Linear Creek is already an eye-catching feature of the community as you make your way along Padma Boulevard and see the scale and hive of activity along the reserve area and will soon be a showstopping feature of the community.

This milestone progresses the culvert to the next phase of above ground construction works.

Following the completion of the body of culvert works below, the gas and water services, including the watermain are installed alongside the road network above.  The installation of the water main involves the construction of underground pipes and associated infrastructure that will enable the water to flow and drain correctly through this portion of the community.

The construction team will also complete the electrical services installation along the road network and install the streetlamps for that section of road.

Once all the services are laid alongside the road network, the whole area is filled in and compacted in preparation for the road layers.

Each stretch of road is made up of multiple layers, compiling of multiple layers of various gravel, kerbs are added at the correct road height and then finally asphalt, which can be seen on the finished surface. Lastly, the road on top of the culvert is completed to connect the road network between stages 7 & 11 within the community. This also includes pavement construction which you can spy is currently being worked on throughout stages 7 and 11.

The culvert is a significant undertaking of a key amenity within the community. Once completed, the culvert will be managed by Melbourne Water and as such, has required careful planning and work completed alongside the authority. The final phase of this contract is acquiring their sign off for the work completed.

Once the authority approval is achieved, the construction team will commission landscaping works on the area to commence along Linear Creek and the connecting wetlands, finally bringing this impressive feature to reality.

Work on the culvert is anticipated for completion in line with the delivery of Stages 11 & Stage 7 due later this year.

Stay tuned for future construction updates coming soon!
