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!

Construction has Commenced on Marigold’s Stage 10 Park.

Growland is excited to announce that construction has commenced on our Stage 10 Park!

This new local park is positioned in the top north-eastern section of our community on the corner of Ulmus Street & Frog Way, aptly named Frog Way Park.

The new park will pay homage to the previously delivered Gathering Grove Park and reinforce the gentle, undulating forms of Marigold’s landscape by continuing the use of curvilinear shared paths around the perimeter and drawing on the use of large ornate boulders and logs to connect the green spaces. Frog Way Park has been designed as a more passively centred park where residents can come to relax and enjoy a quiet moment sitting in the sun on one of the park benches or utilise the large open-grassed area in the centre of the park for picnicking with family and friends.

The park will include feature platform seating, standard bench seating throughout, and a water fountain.

Frog Way Park will include some play equipment, directed towards our youngest residents, who can expect to be attracted to the wooden rockers and flower spinners that will add a burst of bright colour to the park.

Set out and site establishment are underway which involves establishing the building site with all of the correct health and safety measures in place.

Civil construction can then kick off with the next round of tasks including setting up temporary fencing and performing a general clean-up of the site before civil earthworks begin.

The above preliminary works are well underway, and our team are looking forward to commencing earthworks on the park in the new year.

We anticipate Frog Way Park to be open to the community in July next year.

We look forward to delivering this new park to the Marigold community that will provide a space for quiet reflection and encourage a healthy and active lifestyle for all residents. Marigold residents can expect to reap the rewards of being surrounded by ample green space, look forward to spending many hours outdoors and feel the benefits of an enhanced connection to nature. This is a space that all Marigold residents will be able to enjoy passively or actively.

Stay tuned for more construction updates coming soon!
