The Proposed Project

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project which aims to replace a culvert. The existing 21m long, 5050mm x 3330mm culvert under Lawfield Road that allows for a crossing of Kerr Brook was damaged during a storm in October 2016 and again in October 2021 as the result of a vehicle accident. It is being replaced by an open-bottom steel box culvert 35m long and with an end area of 11m2. Work includes removal of old culvert, installation of new culvert, and restoration of Lawfield Road at the site.
