Third Avenue, Everard Park 🌴
Works are in progress in Keswick Creek, between Third Avenue and Anzac Highway.
I was told by a worker that at the upstream entrance to the culvert under Anzac Highway there was ‘a big fat palm tree in the creek that would have slowed the flow’. It is believed that this was a major cause of annual flooding in Third Avenue over the years.
Due to the dense vegetation along this privately owned section of the creek, it had been difficult to identify a blockage at Anzac Highway.
Anyway, it’s a good outcome and hopefully when the current works are complete in June 2020 there will be a reduced likelihood of the annual flooding in Third Avenue.
