Project Overiew

We're rehabilitating the natural section of Munibung Creek in Cardiff, between Pendlebury Road and Gorleston Terrace.

Rehabilitating this section of the creek will:

  • maintain the natural appearance of the waterway
  • stabilise the banks and creek bed to prevent further erosion
  • protect adjoining property and buildings from erosion
  • reduce the build-up of rubbish and weeds.

We have developed a detailed design for the creek rehabilitation, which included feedback from nearby residents and businesses.

July 2022 project update

During our design phase we identified a number of project constraints.

We need to overcome these challenges to deliver the preferred naturalised look while also stabilising the banks on adjacent land parcels. A large amount of contaminated soil needs to be safely moved and managed for this project. We now also know that constructing a naturalised channel will require more specialised techniques than initially anticipated and we continue to work with Council, designers and our potential construction partners to understand the full extent of this work.

As a result, the project will take longer to deliver, and cost more to build.

Given the increased timeframes and costs, the project will need to go through an additional approval process within our organisation.

This approval process must demonstrate how additional investment in this project adds value to the community and our customers, and aligns with our broader strategic investment priorities. This process is consistent across all our major investments.


Timeline

November 2019

Community values and ideas

Input from residents and businesses will inform the design development. The survey closed on Friday 29 November 2019.

Early 2020

Reviewing community feedback

We are currently reviewing the outcomes from the resident survey to inform the concept design.

Late 2020

Finalise the concept design

Following community feedback on the preliminary design for Munibung Creek, we will carry out further studies, including flood modelling and surveys, before finalising the concept design.

2021 - 2022

Detailed design

We have developed a detailed design for the creek rehabilitation, which included an opportunity for nearby residents and businesses to review the design and provide feedback.

Late 2022

Additional approval

Given the increased timeframes and costs identified in the design phase, the project will need to go through an additional approval process within our organisation.

Late 2023

Rehabilitation works

Rehabilitation works will get underway.

Project update - May 2021

We're continuing to progress the design of the meandering creek option for the naturalised rehabilitation of Munibung Creek in Cardiff, which was supported through our community consultation in 2019/2020.
