Picture of the Day: Queensland’s Burnett River Dredging

 

Dredging works in Queensland’s Burnett River involved deepening the navigational channel and placement of the material behind “Kirby’s Wall”.

Neumann Contractors performed the work using their 450mm Cutter Suction Dredge Nu Endeavour coupled to a spreader barge for placement.

The Burnett river was severely impacted by flooding in January 2013. Dredging was required to restore the depth of the river’s navigational channels adjacent to Kirby’s Wall. A total of 65,700 cubic metres of sand and gravel was removed from the channels and placed behind Kirby’s Wall.
