Following joint preparation of a Vegetation Management Plan for American Creek in 2011, Southern Habitat was engaged by BHPBIC to rehabilitate the portion of land formerly associated with Nebo and Mt Kembla Collieries, situated between Stones Road and Kirkwood Place, Mt Kembla.
Our works included rehabilitation, construction of the Mt Kembla Mine Memorial Pathway (Stage 2) and on-ground works to complete a residential sub-division on a portion of the site. This is one of our largest Illawarra projects undertaken to date.
Stage 2 Pathway works consisted of the construction of a formal shared path along and parallel to the original Mt Kembla rail line from Stones Road west to Kirkwood Place. This stage was designed in consultation with the community and constructed as a part of subdivision works by Illawarra Coal to enable to rehabilitation mine affected lands and the sale of surplus lands for residential opportunities.
