Woodlands Drive Catchment master drainage project

Logan City Council is upgrading a section of the Woodlands Drive stormwater catchment at Rochedale South.

Works involve installing new drainage infrastructure along sections of:

  • Woodlands Drive
  • William Street
  • Childs Street
  • Wendy Court
  • Lillian Court
  • Lancelot Street.

Project benefits

Thsi project will provide better flood protection in the Woodlands Drive catchment area during wet weather.

What are we doing?

Works will involve:

  • installing new drainage infrastructure (pipelines, maintenance holes and culverts)
  • upgrading sections of wastewater pipelines
  • improving the drainage outlet structure at Woodlands Park
  • replacing sections of kerb and footpaths, where needed
  • removing and trimming vegetation around the work zone, as required
  • landscaping at Woodlands Park
  • replacing or relocating services, as required 
  • residential driveway reconstruction
  • road pavement restoration.

Upgrading the infrastructure is complex as some of the new pipes measure up to three meters in diameter. This, combined with live traffic, a busy residential area and overhead and underground services, equals a challenging task.

To reduce the duration of the works, we will have multiple site crews actively working on the project.

This will speed up the works and reduce the duration of disruption to the community.

What can I expect?
