Vertu Estate living stream

Vertu living stream

Project Details

The Vertu living stream is located along Wright Road in the Vertu Estate, Harrisdale. It is surrounded by public open space which doubles as a stormwater detention basin. Flush road curbing along Wright Road allows stormwater to be treated in biofilters along the stream’s edge, before flowing into the Forrestdale Main Drain. The design aimed to retain and reflect the natural waterway conditions and consists of a number of biofilters to protect the water quality of the living stream (Forrestdale Main Drain).
