Stormwater works to help protect Pine Gully

Pine Gully erosion control works kicked off again this month, with excavation works ahead of the installation of stormwater pits and pipes at the top of the gully.

This is to help manage the vast amount of water that gushes through the area after a downpour and prevent rubbish and silt from washing out to sea.

The project will take several months to complete and will also see rock armour installed along the base of the gully, for extra erosion control. A walking trail will be built through the gully, with steps to link to the laneway at Pine Avenue.

The Seacliff Stairs will remain open to the public throughout construction, but there may be temporary closures at times if required.

Landscaping works within the gully started in mid 2021, with the extensive removal of many introduced trees species and weeds, followed by soil stabilisation with an organic, turquoise-green product that was sprayed onto the slopes.

Council consulted with the Kaurna Nation and received advice prior to the stormwater works commencing.
