Environment maintenance works on Russell Island commencing Tuesday 18 – Friday 28 July 2017

Redland City Council’s Conservation Unit will be undertaking works in bushland areas on Russell Island over the next two weeks.

Work is expected to begin on Tuesday 18 – Friday 21 July and recommence Monday 24 July until Friday 28 July. Works undertaken from 7:30am to 3:30pm daily.

The purpose of the works is to maintain existing fuel reduction zones, establish new fuel reduction zones and fire trails where necessary.

Council will be using forest mowers, brush cutters, chainsaws and hand tools to undertake weed control, remove undesirable vegetation, uplift branches and remove some trees.

The works will be noisy and we apologise for any inconvenience.

A maintenance schedule will be put in place to ensure the growth of the vegetation is minimal.
