Public works in the City of Kingston will proceed from an award of about seven million dollars in tenders.
The projects worth $7.1 million will be based in the suburb of Mordialloc, including the second stage of dredging at Mordialloc Creek, sheet pile installations at Lambert Island and Mordialloc Shopping Centre streetscape works.
Council awarded a $5.56 million tender to environmental utility organization, Thiess Services to work on the Mordialloc Creek dredging project in its second stage.
Bridge & Civil Pty Ltd was awarded the $732600 tender for sheet pile installations at Lambert Island.
Streetscape works for the Mordialloc Shopping Centre will be conducted by CDN Constructors Pty Ltd for a tender of $815147.
Expected for completion in November 2012, the dredging project will improve the health of the waterway, as well as providing access for the boating community who have been unable to navigate the creek at low tide.
Proceeding in parallel with the dredging program and expected to be completed in August 2012, the sheet wall project at Lambert Island will widen the creek’s main channel and allow for additional mooring places and a pontoon landing for small boat launches.
The shopping centre project will include replacing footpaths and street furniture, landscaping, upgrading storm water drainage pipe and pit, constructed indented parking backs and installing street lights and traffic signs.
