Gully Pit Conversion Program 2020–21

Commencing: November 2020
Completion: June 2021
Cost: $172,900

As part of our annual Gully Pit Conversion Program, the City of Gold Coast is upgrading a number of gully pits across the city.

Gully pit upgrade works are required to ensure our bicycle routes are safe and that an acceptable standard of drainage infrastructure is maintained. We have identified gully inlet grates along existing bicycle routes that are hazardous to people on bikes.

Construction details

  • The 2020-21 program will encompass 26 priority sites, refer to location of works table below. The sites are located in residential areas and some high traffic roads.
  • These works are considered low impact and low risk and are expected to be completed in just a few hours at each site (weather permitting).
  • Traffic cones and generic road works signage will be used to safely cordon off the area.
  • Local residents may notice some temporary construction noise and minor disruption in some areas. Pedestrian management may be required at some sites.
  • Property access will be maintained at all times and construction notifications will be delivered prior to the works commencing.
  • At times there may be single lane closures, which will be managed by traffic control.
  • Some works will involve the use of heavy machinery including, but not limited to, excavators and concrete trucks.
  • To minimise impact on surrounding residents, works are proposed to be completed during normal working hours, being Monday to Friday between the hours of 7am and 5pm.
