Hagley Park Siphon

Downer subcontracted JCL to install a 150 pe water water siphon under the Avon River at the end of Kilmore & Park Terrace.  The project required JCL to install a temporary working platform to support a 25 tonne excavator, JCL was then able to drive in sheet piles via a trench system. Once the sheet piles were installed in the trench, JCL dewatered the site using 2 Sykes 150 QS pumps. The water was passed through two silt traps via a concrete spill chamber and back in the Avon River. Both Downer and the CCC were pleased with the result, particularly due to JCL’s care to ensure there was no environmental harm to the Avon River.
