Byford - culvert drain - hardstand driveway
Updated: Sep 20, 2021
The first 3 photos show the old bridge above Beenyup Brook which runs through our clients property.
The bridge is collapsing and is a danger to drive over hence steel plates have been placed over subsiding holes temporarily.
The following 3 photos show the first truck load of concrete headwalls being delivered prior to the bridge and Brook being excavated to facilitate the installation of the new headwalls and 900mm Ø pipes.
The collapsing bridge has been excavated and removed ready for the installation of the new drainage system.
The excavator on site is preparing to lift in two 900mm Ø stormwater culvert pipes and matching headwalls.
Pipes and headwalls installed, checked for water flow and backfilling has begun.
The following 4 photos show the completed hardstand driveway installed over the newly constructed drainage system.
The excavation was backfilled, compacted and covered with a combination of roadbase and gravel to match existing surfaces.
Note the headwalls are exposed above ground level for safety purposes acting as a guide for traffic.
