2. PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Roseland Creek, between Glencrest Road and Spruce
Avenue within the City of Burlington has been identified as a site where
mitigation is required to resolve erosion control problems along the bed and
banks of the channel. The City of
Burlington completed a Class EA for the study, and later retained Aquafor Beech
Limited to complete the detailed design.
The design includes over 1,100m of significant channel restoration.
The project has been divided into two phases. The first phase (Phase 1) extends from
upstream Glencrest Road to New Street, and is approximately 600m in
length. The second phase (Phase 2)
extends from New Street to Spruce Avenue.
Figure 1 illustrates the approximate extents of each phase.
All contractors successfully pre-qualified will be
given the chance to submit a bid for works on both phases. The City reserves
the right to tender Phase 1 and Phase 2 separately, or both phases under the
same tender. The City intends on
completing Phase 1 prior to the end of year 2012.
All work within Roseland Creek will be applicable to
the warmwater timing window for in-channel works as defined by Conservation
Halton. This window generally allows for
works to occur from July 1 through to March 31 the following year (9 months).
