BEACH MILIEU ROADSIDE DRAINAGE WORKS PROPOSED

Residents of Beach Milieu off Davidson Street, Bargara would be aware of the roadside drainage issues that have been ongoing for some time. After any rain event, sections of the deep drains fill with water and due to the minimal fall in the land, it remains there for some time. Indeed, there are some sections that are permanently full of slimy water and long reeds. The most affected sections are on Masthead Drive, Atlantis Boulevarde and Aquarius Drive.

Having lobbied Council for several years about these issues, the engineers have now advised me that they will be staging the remedial works which will include designing a suitable fall and installing concrete inverts into the bottom of the deep drains which should resolve the issues in Atlantis & Masthead once and for all. (An example of this type of invert can be seen in the main drainage channel on the northern alignment of Blain Street.) Aquarius is a bit more complicated as discussed below.

Atlantis Boulevarde – (see red line on map)
Over the next few months work will commence to install some 250m of inverts into the drains along the northern alignment of Atlantis Boulevarde from Masthead Drive and into the main lagoon area. This work is expected to cost some $50,000 which is allocated in the current budget.

Masthead Drive – (see yellow line on map)
The work on Masthead Drive is a little more complicated and the proposal is to dig out the drain, acquire an overall fall of about 700mm and install approximately 130m of invert from the northern cul-de-sac to discharge into the main drainage channel leading to the lagoon.

Even though this is approximately half the distance of the Atlantis Boulevarde work, it’s estimated to cost about $100,000 to complete and will need to be included in the upcoming 2015/16 budget and carried out as a separate project.

Aquarius Drive
I understand that the drainage on the southern alignment of Aquarius Drive is even more complicated and may well require the installation of a well and pump-out system so until I have all the information related to any proposed solution, I’m not including it in this post but will publish further advices when the information comes to hand.
