Why is the excavation hole in my street bigger than the finished garden beds on the plans?
Our construction team has to excavate a very large hole in the street initially to build the form-work which will hold the finished garden beds.
Some residents have been concerned about the size of the excavation hole as the excavation area appears to be bigger than the finished garden bed on the plans.
Rest assured our construction teams will build the garden beds to the exact specifications of the plans approved by Council's Traffic Committee.
The finished garden beds are smaller than the excavation hole. Once construction is finished the road will be restored surrounding the new garden bed.
Why has the City decided to plant trees in roads?
How does the City decide which streets are suitable for in-road tree planting?
Will large fire engines, garbage trucks and other big vehicles be able to access my street after the trees are planted in the road?
Who will maintain the new garden beds?
The City will maintain the garden beds. In addition we will send a qualified arborist to check the trees twice a week for the first year.
