Innovative Water Sensitive Design for Ramsden Street Reserve

While our focus is on the current coronavirus situation across Victoria, the work locally continues. The Andrews Labor Government recently announced $264,000 to trial a new way of reusing old rubber car tyres to create penetrable pavement to capture storm-water, treat and store it in an underground system for irrigation and reuse at Ramsden St Reserve. Reusing old rubber tyres for the construction of water sensitive urban design is an innovative solution that tackles delivers on the principles of the circular economy by improving both storm-water and waste management The funding is part of a $48.4 million investment in shovel-ready water projects under the Government’s new $2.7 billion Building Works program – to get thousands of people back to work across our state as Victoria continues to recover from the coronavirus pandemic. The project will be delivered in Partnership with City of Yarra and University of Melbourne. This project is a great opportunity to capture, treat and store storm-water - benefiting our local community in the long term as well as stimulating the economy now when we need it. Quotes attributable to Member for Richmond Richard Wynne “This project is a great opportunity to capture, treat and store stormwater - benefitting our local community.” “Improving our local facilities is vital for our growing community, ensuring we have the right facilities for our community to enjoy.”
