Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi (Park 16) Wetlands
Bardavcol have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Ecodynamics to assist BHKC Stormwater Board and ProcurePM in delivering the Pakapakanthi / Victoria Park Wetlands Project.
With the official opening last Friday, feedback from the community has been outstanding, making battling through a wet winter well worth it.
Well done to Greg Matthews, Gianni Fattori and the entire Bardavcol team on delivering this outstanding project.

Flagstaff Road Upgrade
The Department for Infrastructure and Transport (the Department) and Bardavcol are progressing well with the delivery of the Flagstaff Road Upgrade project, with bulk earth works now completed in readiness for the construction of the fourth additional lane to make the road a permanent two-way dual carriageway.
Bardavcol have been working hard investigating opportunities to reduce the project’s carbon footprint and improve sustainability outcomes. Through an idea initiated by SA Water, excess material excavated from this project will be re-used at Happy Valley and Mount Bold reservoir reserves, as part of works to stabilise ground for carparks and walking trails, before the sites open to the public later this year.
As part of Bardavcol’s ongoing business we continually investigate opportunities to integrate projects to deliver broader improved sustainability and efficiency delivery in collaboration with the Department and other key stakeholders.

Victoria Park Wetlands
Many will have seen progress of the Brown Hill Keswick Creek Stormwater Project wetlands at Victoria Park/Pakapakanthi (Park 16) from Fullarton road. It has been all hands on deck and the Bardavcol team are making great progress with 62,000m³ of 125,000m³ of soil excavated also quickly approaching completion for the viewing mound and embankment areas. The existing creek has been widened to its new configuration with embankment stabilisation completed on the southern side. Most of the soil bank evident from the road will be re-used with any excess removed from the site. We look forward to this project not only aiding the management of flooding but also improving water quality, enhancing biodiversity of the area and creating amenity for park users.
