Wardell Street face lift for flood damaged retaining wall Enoggera
The Department of Transport and Main Roads is carrying out reconstruction works on a number of state-controlled roads in the Metropolitan Region that were damaged by the flood events of 2010/2011.
Works to repair the retaining wall on the western side of Wardell Street near the intersection of Lone Pine Street in Enoggera are expected to begin in mid-September 2012 and will be completed in 9 weeks, weather permitting.
Wardell Street near intersection with Lone Pine Street, Enoggera.
The retaining wall will be stabilised to ensure road users, residents and pedestrians remain safe.
The project is being delivered under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA), a joint federal and state initiative.
Under these arrangements, the Australian government provides 75% of the funding, with 25% from the Queensland Government.
More than $2.3 million is being invested to repair the retaining walls that were damaged during the floods on the eastern and western sides of Wardell Street in the vicinity of the intersection with Banks Street in Enoggera. The retaining wall on the eastern side of Wardell Street near Banks Street intersection was repaired in mid-June 2012.
The work will require lane closures while works to repair the wall on the western side of Wardell Street near Lone Pine Street intersection are being carried out.
One lane will be closed during working hours. One lane will remain open at all times, and minor delays are expected for motorists. Traffic management will be in place. Works will be carried out Monday to Saturday between 9am and 3pm. The closed lane will re-open outside of working hours.
The retaining wall repairs starting in mid-September 2012 include:
- stabilising the retaining wall on the western side of Wardell Street by:
- spraying concrete on to damaged sections of slope
- drilling rock bolts beneath the surface to reinforce the sprayed concrete.
- Reinstatement of adjacent pedestrian paths.
