Gramps, from a rellie who works at GDCC...
"there are three different authorities involved here.
Council maintains the bike path, but where it crosses under the freeway
or Heatherton Rd, the culvert is maintained by VicRoads. And Melbourne
Water maintains the Dandenong Creek at the Heatherton Rd underpass so issues with regard to flooding could be referred to them.
These underpasses are within the floodway, and will flood regularly.
I've been advised that Council undertakes to clean the bike path after
it has flooded, so the contact here is Sean Ponton, Operations
Co-ordinator - Works at
If there needs to be more regular maintenance so that the water doesn't
sit there after a flood, then its probably up to council to get in touch
with Melbourne Water to maintain it properly, or do it ourself when
we're cleaning it."
