(1) That Administration submits a response by 5 September 2012 to the
Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure’s (DPTI)
application to the Development Assessment Commission (DAC)
addressing issues surrounding the Goodwood Junction Rail Upgrade
Project (GJRUP). This submission is to highlight:
(a) Council’s concerns with the proposed route of the Malcolm
Street to the tramway by-pass culvert as identified in DPTI
plans and the proposed route of the culvert identified in the
Brownhill and Keswick Creek Stormwater Project (BHKCSP) –
Stormwater Management Plan 2012 and Council staff to
identify alternative route(s) for the culvert if possible;
(b) Council’s concern that the crossing points of the BHCK
Diversion Culvert and the High Flow By-Pass Culvert are not
sufficiently large enough to carry the expected flows emanating
from upstream of Brownhill Creek;
(c) Council’s concern that the Brown Hill Keswick Creek Steering
Project team is made aware of the plans submitted by DPTI to
the DAC and is confident that the crossing points and sizes
proposed will accommodate any flow expected along Brownhill
Creek in a 90 minute and 36 hour rainfall event upstream of
(d) Any other concerns that may develop before the response is
forwarded to DAC.
(2) That the Mayor and Deputy Mayor work with Administration to
formulate the response to DAC.
(3) That the response be used as a basis for a letter to be sent to DPTI as
well, outlining Council's concerns with the GJRUP.
