Wastewater pipeline caters for future growth

Construction on a new 235m wastewater pipeline to cater for future growth in Beenleigh will enter a new stage next week.

Detours will be in place for the area around Kokoda St, Beenleigh, from Wednesday, June 13 to continue the installation of the sewerage infrastructure.

Logan City Council City Roads and Water Committee Chairman, Councillor Phil Pidgeon, said the Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance (LoganWIA) was installing the pipeline between Manila St and Kokoda St to increase local wastewater storage capacity and reduce the potential for overflows during wet weather.

"We've been working on private land since May and have now reached the next stage, which means closing part of Kokoda St and some bus stops until mid-July so we can work in the roadway," he said.

"Detours will be in place via Boundary St, Logan St, City Rd and George St, but residents will still have access to their properties as required."

Division 12 Councillor, Jennie Breene, said the LoganWIA would make every effort to minimise impacts on residents and drivers.

"A letter has been issued to local residents and we've installed signs at the bus stops near Darwin St to advise of the temporary closure.

"The alternative bus stops will be located 300m east along Kokoda St, near Bougainville St.

"We know this work will mean some inconvenience, however it's necessary for the community's wellbeing, so I thank everyone for their cooperation."

Pending weather and construction conditions, the overall project is expected to be completed in September.
