Rookwood Weir one step closer to completion

The last monolith of the Rookwood Weir spillway crest is now complete, with the final concrete pour of the top of the monolith occurring at the weekend.  

This achievement marks completion of the weir’s spillway which comprises 13 monolith structures, each 16.2 metres in height and 15.5 metres wide creating a curved top for water to flow over the weir.

More than 129,500 of the required 131,000 cubic metres of concrete has now been poured, meaning the weir component of the project is now 98% complete.  

The final concrete element, which will protect the weir structure from erosion, will be completed in the coming weeks.

More information on this milestone is available in this Ministerial media statement.
