Lower Molonglo Dam Stabilisation

 

Location: The Lower Molonglo Water Quality Control Center, ACT

Prospect Contractors installed 1352m3 of Terramesh Gabion walls on 1.2m wide concrete footings, with rock anchors for tying into the existing embankments. This will provide safer access within the dam and reduce current maintenance. It will treat 80 to 90 million litres of wastewater and recycle an average of 10 million litres of wastewater a day.

Halls Gap Flood Recovery

 

Location: Halls Gap, Victoria


In January 2011 a major flood swept through the Grampians National Park at Halls Gap, causing damage to a number of roads. Mount Victory Road was closed due to extensive landslides. We have since constructed several Gabion retaining walls to stabilise the mountain side and to reinstate the road. A water inlet and outlet has also been installed, taking any future heavy rainfall safely down away from the road.
