Adjacent to Casuarina Park at Lake Ginninderra, the shoreline of Emu Inlet was dramatically reshaped to improve recreational access to and around the lake. The project involved construction of a new lake wall, dredging of the lake to form the new curved inlet shape, reclaiming the existing harbour to create the new grassed bank, extension of storm water pipes including a new large storm water chamber and headwall, paving, landscaping and pedestrian lighting.
With construction costs of $4.2 million the initial stage of the project incorporating the lake walls, dredging, storm water works, pedestrian lighting and associated landscaping was completed in 2012.
The reshaped inlet will improve water circulation and thereby reduce smells and pollution. It will also improve the accessibility and usability of the space for a variety of recreation pursuits and community events.
