Boobegan Creek lock refurbishment

Boobegan Creek lock refurbishment

Commenced: November 2017
Completion: November 2018

Project information

Boobegan Creek lock is located 650 metres upstream of the bridge at the Nerang Broadbeach Road/Gooding Drive junction at Carrara. It provides boating access from Clear Island Lakes to the Nerang River.

Investigations have identified that refurbishment of the automated lock is required if it is to continue to operate.

Construction details

Works include the specialist fabrication and installation of new lock gates, mechanical components and associated electrical system.

Temporary, short-term lock closures will be necessary before and during the refurbishment works. Registered lock users will be notified and lock fees will be waived during periods of closure.

We will ensure disruptions are kept to a minimum. However, local residents may notice construction noise at times. Works will take place between 6.30am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

These works are part of our ongoing maintenance and investment in our waterways.
