Project Location: Gladstone, Queensland
Designer: Coffey Services Australia
Installation Contractor: Ground Stabilistion Systems
End Use Client: Gladstone Regional Council
Date Installed: May 2020
In 2008 significant rainfall in the Gladstone region preceded a landslip on the eastern side of Auckland Hill. The area of instability is still mostly bare, or with sparse vegetation, suggesting that the instability is still active, potentially in the form of unravelling and slumping.
Coffey Services Australia were engaged by Gladstone Regional Council to undertake a general slope stability assessment and a detailed design of remedial measures for one of the slopes at Auckland Hill. Situated at the entrance of the harbour, Auckland Hill is a council reserve predominantly used as parkland.
