Residents can expect some disruption at Huntly Road if the council’s stream engineering works go ahead in early 2010. Stormwater project engineer Bruce Palmer has informed the Residents & Ratepayers Association that North Shore City Council is currently seeking consents from owners, affected parties and the North Shore City Parks Department for the construction of a new retaining wall for Campbells Bay Stream – to help prevent erosion and stormwater damage.
The plans require a three-metre strip of recently-planted native vegetation along the stream bank to be removed and two mature trees near the bus stop to be felled, to allow access for a 20-tonne excavator for drilling and earthworks. An in-ground retaining wall, rip-rap rocks and planted, soil-filled socks will then be constructed. Replanting of a selection of native plants will follow – but not until autumn. Council’s planned start-date is mid-January with completion expected by mid-March.
