River wall up­grade

The Riverine Herald - - NEWS -

CAM­PASPE Shire is in the mid­dle of a $250,000 up­grade of Cam­paspe River which was dam­aged by on­go­ing high river lev­els.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Ja­son Rus­sell said a 20m sec­tion of re­tain­ing wall ad­ja­cent to Beech­worth Bak­ery and ad­join­ing carpark was be­ing re­built.

‘‘That will be fin­ished in the next three or four weeks be­fore the peak tourism sea­son,’’ he said.

The area has some re­stric­tions with the deck con­structed up to the river bank, steep­ness of the bank and tight ac­cess to the area.

Works will in­volve driv­ing steel poles into the river bank, about 2.5 me­tres apart, an­chor­ing the poles into the land and slid­ing con­crete pan­els between each pole.

The park­ing area ad­ja­cent to Beech­worth Bak­ery on Rad­cliffe St will be closed dur­ing con­struc­tion.

Ac­cess to the River Walk, along the Cam­paspe River to the north will be main­tained through­out the project.
