Newport Development Lock & Lake Filling Excursion

27-Nov-2018 

Last Friday (23 November) Grace Lutheran Primary School Year 3 and Year 5 students were treated to an exclusive view of the Stockland Newport Isles Development's lake filling. The lake started construction in 2015 and over the next 2 weeks will be filled with water from Moreton Bay.

Grace Lutheran Primary School Principal Mrs Trudy Moala said it was a unique learning opportunity for the students to see the lake filling and learn about lock construction that will join the lake with Moreton Bay.

The Stockland Development Manager Mr Ricky Stainkey and Construction Managers shared the master plan and development approach of the area and explained to students how the lake and lock were made, the engineering and mechanics of the lock, the environmental factors involved and the treatment and recycling of soils.
