Stormwater drainage upgrades Boundary Street, Currumbin Waters

Stormwater pipes

Project information

The City maintains over 2500 kilometres of stormwater drainage with an ongoing upgrade and renewal program.

As part of this program the Boundary Street, Currumbin Waters drainage catchment is being upgraded to improve flood resilience. Upgrade works will take place in three stages over several years.

Stage 1

Completed: June 2019
Cost: $2.35 million

Construction details

Stage one for the project is now complete and included:

  • construction of an underground drainage system along the southern end of Boundary Street (from Jewel Street) to the Judeller Road drainage reserve
  • relocation of underground services
  • shallow trenches under the road for pipe installation
  • road resurfacing and new kerbs and gutters.

Stage 2

Completed: May 2020
Cost: $3.78 million

Construction details

Stage two for the project is now complete and included construction of a new underground drainage system at two locations:

  • Northern end of Boundary Street, across Currumbin Creek Road, along Love Street and discharging through an existing drainage path near Noojee Street.
  • From the intersection of Currumbin Creek Road and Station Street and discharging along Station Street into Currumbin Creek.

Stage 3

Commencing: October 2020
Completion: May 2021 (weather permitting)
Cost: $2 million

Construction details

Stage 3 includes the installation of new drainage along:

  • Elizabeth Street, crossing Michel Drive
  • Noojee Street, crossing Michel Drive.

New outfalls will be constructed into Currumbin Creek.

Works will also involve the relocation of underground services, shallow trenches under the road for pipe installation, road resurfacing and new kerbs and gutters.


Benefits to the community

  • increase the capacity of the drainage system
  • replace ageing infrastructure
  • reduce the effects of localised flooding
  • improved serviceability standards and maintenance cost.

Public impact

All works will take place in road reserves, on public land, pathways and open space areas.

We are working to minimise all disruptions. However partial road closures will be in place so we can complete the works safely. Local residents may notice some construction noise, dust and vibration at times.

This project is part of our long-term commitment to improve the city’s flood resilience.

Thank you for your patience during these works.
