Water going into a stormwater drain

We continue to renew culverts (under-road stormwater drainage pipes) that are close to the end of their serviceable life.

We maintain over 2600 kilometres of stormwater drainage with an ongoing upgrade and renewal program. These works are part of our $23 million stormwater drainage annual capital works program.

Construction details

Existing under-road drainage pipes will be excavated and replaced with new pipes.

Works are expected to take approximately 10 to 20 days at each site.

Community impacts

Some partial or full road closures may be necessary. There may be traffic delays. Traffic control officers will be on duty to help.

Residents may experience construction noise at times.

We will be working to ensure disruptions are kept to a minimum.

Benefits for the community

  • Improve safety for the community
  • Reduce the risk of over-floor flooding in catchment areas
