$500K upgrade for Burpengary drainage system

Moreton Bay Regional Council has awarded a $500,000 tender to upgrade the drainage system adjacent to the Burpengary Sports Complex.

 

Division 2 Councillor Peter Flannery said the upgrade would involve increasing the capacity of a 220m stretch of the drainage system near David and Joyce streets, Burpengary.

 

“This upgrade will help mitigate severe rain events and accommodate for growth in the local area,” Cr Flannery said.

 

The project is part of council’s $18.8 million commitment to stormwater, waterways and coastal infrastructure in 2018/19.

 

Works are expected commence in coming weeks at the tail-end of local sporting seasons and take nine weeks to complete, weather permitting.
