Galeen Honeyeater Pedestrian Bridge – Environmental Investigation Report
Terrestrial and aquatic flora identification | Understanding of likely construction impacts to aquatic environment | Local and State legislation
Gold Coast City Council (GCCC) engaged AWC to provide an environmental investigation report into the proposed pedestrian bridge construction over Lake Heron between the Galeen Drive Park and Honeyeater Drive Park at Burleigh Waters, lining two recreational parks on either side of Lake Heron.
The pedestrian bridge requires six driven piers to be placed within the existing stream bed and abutments to be constructed on the banks of the watercourse. Temporary groynes will be installed within the stream to facilitate pile driving and provide working platforms for cranes lifting bridge beams into place.
- To ascertain any and all potential environmental impacts that would be associated with the proposed works
