Woodlands Drive Catchment master drainage project

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

Works will involve upgrading drainage infrastructure along sections of:

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

Project benefits

Woodlands Drive stormwater needs to be upgraded to provide better flood protection for the 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 inconvenience to the community.

What can I expect?

The expected construction impacts are explained in the project works notification (PDF 225 KB)

Traffic impacts

There will be progressive traffic changes during the works. These include:

  • reduced speed limits
  • progressive road / lane closures
  • associated traffic detours around the work zones.

Traffic controllers will be available help motorists and pedestrians during construction working hours.

Electronic signage and traffic controllers will provide updated traffic detour information.

We will list traffic arrangements below as more information becomes available.
