Woodlinks rehabilitation works

23 August 2019

Village Building have recently engaged environmental consultants and contractors to carry out the next stage of rehabilitation works along the Goodna Creek riparian corridor which borders Woodlinks to the east.

Works have been focussed on weed removal and ongoing management, rubbish removal and extensive revegetation planting. The focus for new planting and recruitment of regrowth species has been to provide an enhanced habitat outcome for native fauna and provide a green backdrop for the Woodlinks community.  Extensive Koala tree planting has been carried out into existing open areas above the creek banks and existing trees have been encouraged by removing competing weed species. In some sections weed infestation was so thick that the creek line was difficult to locate. After recent works the creek can be seen running again.  

This is the second major stage in the Goodna Creek rehabilitation works covering over 3.5 hectares with over 7 hectares of revegetation and weed management already being commenced in 2016. Future phases of environmental work will extend creek line rehabilitation even further north to Eagle street.

Rehabilitation areas are integrated with a continuous linear pathway along the parkland esplanade road.  Pathways are wide enough to cater for shared cycle and pedestrian traffic and have been densely planted with Weeping Lillypilly shade trees. Shaded seating points and amenities will be dotted along the pathway to enable residents to enjoy the outlook and progress in the rehabilitation area.
