2. ANZAC AVENUE - STATE HIGHWAY 88

by Charlotte, 11 months ago


In this section, the water level goes up and down with the tide, creating an estuarine environment, and we’ve come up with concepts that enhance the theme of a ‘tidal estuary’.

This area also has high foot traffic, especially during events at the stadium. Enhancements could improve road safety and enhance connectivity.

Key features:
• Embankment on both sides with estuarine plantings and ‘destination space’
• Underpass on both banks at Anzac Ave bridge
• Connect with existing pathways
• Creative spaces such as artwork space on existing centre wall
• Increased visual appeal by planting native plants along stadium river edge
• Improve the SH 88 underpass access to stadium.

In reply to Mr or Ms N/A who wrote "I hope that some form of system is put in place to keep the stream bed covered with water; as at present, but improved from the present pieces of timber." patches of sand and mud exposed to air have a lot of ecological value and can attract sea birds. I understand the reason for covering the stream bed at present as it is quite unattractive but I believe some room can be made for allowing a natural tidal habitat

I like the improvements. Please limit a hard, straight edge to the stream to where this is absolutely necessary. The stream edge should be "soft" to allow colonisation by tiny plants and animals. "Soft" includes roughened concrete that can be easily colonised, if a sturdy edge is necessary, or rocks. Overhanging grasses may encourage whitebait by providing egg-laying habitat. Please allow natural processes to occur at the stream edge.

There should be a bridge across from the stadium to parry street to allow people to walk down there and link up to Anzac ave.

The idea looks good but I don't understand what the sculptures are about.
