Mountain View Avenue, Miami stormwater drainage upgrade

Stormwater pipes

Project information

Stormwater drainage improvement works are progressing on Mountain View Avenue, Miami and in Ernie Tebb Park. Flooding has been known to affect roads, buildings and homes in the catchment, and these works are part of extensive drainage improvements planned for the area. The upgrade is an important investment in our city’s flood resilience.

Stage 1

Completed: 2009
Cost: $1.6 million

Stage 1 works included installation of a large stormwater drainage network along Mountain View Avenue from Evandale Crescent to the outlet at Miami Lake.

Stage 2 and 3

Commenced: July 2018
Completion: September 2019
Cost: $7.1 million

Project details

  • Stage 2 works were completed in January 2019 and included the easements which connect the park to Albion Avenue to the north, Nobby Parade to the east, and Snipe Street to the west. Full road closures were required for the drainage road crossings at Albion Avenue and Nobby Parade. Tree planting and landscaping took place once works were complete.
  • Stage 3 works were completed in September 2019 and included works across Nobby Parade to the east.
  • A new shelter structure and additional seating has been installed at the northern section of Ernie Tebb Park. We've also installed fencing around the dog park for the safety of park users.

Stage 4

Commencing: October 2019
Completion: March 2020
Cost: $3 million

Project details

  • Following the successful completion of Stage 3, the drainage scheme is now progressing along Nundah Avenue, currently working between Nobby Parade and Evandale Crescent.
  • Stage 4 works involve the installation of underground drainage along Nundah Avenue between Nobby Parade and Sunshine Parade.
  • As drainage works progress, the closure will move along Nundah Parade toward Sunshine Parade (dates to be advised).
  • Works are progressing well and are expected to be completed by May 2020.

During these works, local traffic conditions will change, including:

  • Full road closure Nundah Avenue / Evandale Crescent intersection from 6 January 2020 to 12 February 2020.
  • Full road closure Nundah Avenue (between Evandale Crescent and Sunshine Parade). Sunshine Parade will remain open to all traffic during this phase from 6 January 2020 to early March 2020.
  • Full road closure Sunshine Parade (between Nundah Avenue and 34 Sunshine Parade). Sunshine Parade will be closed during this phase from early March to May 2020.

Detours will be in place and some on-street parking will be temporarily restricted. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.

Future stages

Planning has commenced for a fifth stage to the Mountain View Avenue stormwater drainage works. This stage involves the continuation of the Ernie Tebb Park drainage at Snipe Street, upstream along Albion Avenue up to June court in the upper catchment. A commencement date will be announced in the near future.

Benefits to the community

  • improved flood resilience for properties and roads in the catchment
  • the water that ponds in the playing fields in Ernie Tebb Park will drain much faster after rain events
  • landscaping and native tree planting will restore and improve the overall park amenity.

  • Why are there trees with fences around them?

    During early works we will be transplanting some trees. The fences are for safety, please keep clear.

  • Who is Ernie Tebb?

    The park was named in recognition of the personal contribution made by Ernie Tebb to the beautification of parks and gardens within the city. When the park was named in 1977 Ernie Tebb was the Deputy Parks Superintendent with Gold Coast City Council, having joined the Parks’ staff in 1954. He was a returned soldier who served with the 6th Division in New Guinea during World War II.

    Ernie Tebb was involved in developing many of the city’s parks including The Cascades, ANZAC Park, Memorial Park, Macintosh Park and Greenmount Waterfall. He was noted for his love of using large rocks as evident in most park developments within the city during that time.

  • Are you removing any furniture in the park?

    No furniture will be removed from the park. However, some of the seating and park furniture may be temporarily closed during works. The children’s playground will remain open.
