    Halloo, My group has a few questions about the retaining wall project.
    1. Are there any wildlife in the river?
    2. Are there any animals surrounding the river? If yes, what is the type of it?
    3. Is the use of mangrove trees considered disrespectful to their country?
    4. Are there any skillful people to build the rammed earth?
    That’s all Thank you!!!

    Hi Jacky,

    The answers to your questions 1-3 are already found in the Design Area 1 – Structures brief. I wonder if you had a chance to browse the interactives? It’s a great way to immerse yourself in the environment and culture of your target project location.

    In terms of having skilled people to build the rammed earth, many of the maintenance crew employed at Dawul Wuru have a wide range of skills, and some are qualified tradespeople. They also have an existing Yirrganydji Land and Sea Ranger Program in which they aim to provide support, training, life skills, and career pathways. In your proposal, you may include this specific skill as something they could develop.

    Can you give me more context regarding your question on maintenance? Does this refer to your proposed structure once it’s built?

    Does there need to be a gap between the walls or will it be one whole straight structure?

    For maintenance, if like there is some rock in the river which hit on the wall and make it got hole already.
    So will it be fix or any maintenance done on it or not?
    Thank you so much!!!
