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

Commenced: July 2019
Completion expected: May 2020
Cost: $3.78 million

Construction details

Stage two for the project is currently underway and includes 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.

Works will include:

  • relocation of underground services
  • trenches under the road for pipe installation
  • two new outfall structures
  • road resurfacing and new kerbs and gutters where applicable.

Benefits to the community

  • reduce the effects of localised flooding
  • reduce maintenance costs.

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.
