Sichter Street Slope Remediation and Construction
During the 2017 Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie, a section of the bank of Plane Creek was washed away,taking with it a portion of a residential street. Vassallo Constructions was awarded the contract to stabilise the existing bank, dewater, excavate and construct a keyed foundation within Plane Creek and installed a stabilised, rock mulched batter and reconstruct the damaged roadway, footpath and drainage. Due to the close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, and classification of this location as Reef regrowth watercourse vegetation, strict environmental controls were put in place for the duration of this project.
