Barker Ryan Stewart provided surveying services to assist the NSW Public Works Department of Regional NSW with several flood levees across the Northern Rivers region.
The project forms part of NSW Public Work’s Flood Levee Repair and Maintenance Program, which was formed following the significant and devastating flooding events that occurred across NSW in early 2022.
The Program will include a review of the existing urban levees protecting local communities and aim to identify any necessary repair and maintenance work. The information captured by the surveys, inspections and conditions assessments will be utilised by NSW Public Works to prioritise planned maintenance and repair works required throughout the region.
Barker Ryan Stewart undertook detail surveys of several levees within the Byron Shire Council, Tweed Shire Council, and Kyogle Council LGAs.
The project includes the following flood levees:
- South Golden Beach Levee
- Murwillumbah CBD Levee
- Murwillumbah South Levee
- Murwillumbah East Levee
- Murwillumbah – Dorothy-William Street Levee
- Tweed South Levee
- Kyogle Levee
We are proud to be involved in a project that will help improve the resilience of infrastructure and protect our local communities against potential future flooding events.
