Tender applications open for Carisbrook Levee project
Published on 31 July 2020
The tender for Stage 3 of the Carisbrook construction project was advertised in The Maryborough District Advertiser and Council’s website today (31/07).
At the February Council Meeting, Council determined to issue a Notice of Decision to grant a planning permit for the Carisbrook Flood Mitigation Levee works – stage 3 and 4
The planning permit involved the construction of a flood levee, associated earthworks and infrastructure and utility installation.
Council is now in a position to tender for construction of part of the levee – Stage 3, with design work completed for tender documents.
The tender will include the construction of the Levee being the section of Pleasant Street from the Pyrenees Highway to the railway line and High Street from the railway line to Church Street.
The works involve building up, and constructing a sealed road and associated open drainage works. The works associated with the Railway line and Pyrenees Hwy culverts will be undertaken in the future stage.
Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said the release of the tender marked another key milestone in the Carisbrook Flood Mitigation Levee project.
“Stage 3 and 4 are the final stages of the flood mitigation works that will see the construction of the levee.
“Since we commenced as administrators, this project has been a major focus and we’ve remained committed to supporting the Carisbrook community in managing flood mitigation.
“We acknowledge it’s been a long process for the community of Carisbrook and we are obviously very happy to see this project move to the final stage.”
The levee project has been designed in response to major floods which occurred in 2010 and 2011.
Significant consultation with the Carisbrook community has been undertaken over a number of years as well as consultation with referral agencies, public and private land owners prior to the planning application being lodged.
Tender applications close on 26 August, 2020.
