Highbury Aqueduct

An extensive consultation process was undertaken by WAX, in collaboration with URPS and DEWNR to facilitate the design of a masterplan along the length of the old Aqueduct at Highbury.


The masterplan was designed to guide the future development of land to provide access for the community and improve the visual amenity of the site as well as the creation of informal recreational, social and cultural activities.

Staging was designed into the masterplan to ensure the design outcomes can be progressively implemented. The management and maintenance of local vegetation was incorporated to encourage a rich biodiversity along with innovative water sensitive design approaches to support effective stormwater management.
