Pialba drainage upgrade

5 March, 2019

A $400,000 project to replace underground stormwater pipes which service the Pialba CBD will start on Tuesday, March 5.

It is anticipated that the project will be completed in May, weather permitting.

The project involves replacing existing stormwater drainage infrastructure across the Seafront Oval and Esplanade. 

“A CCTV inspection of the underground pipes showed the existing stormwater pipes were in a poor condition with signs of cracking and joint displacement,” Cr Anne Maddern said.

“The project will renew the stormwater system and help ensure that stormwater from the Pialba CBD can get away quickly.

“The work will start at the beachside of the oval and work towards the CBD to cross the Esplanade in six weeks, weather permitting.

Car parking for the Wetside Water Park will be impacted by the works as vehicles will not be able to access the oval. Car parks are available nearby in front of the All Abilities Playground and beside the Memorial Hall in Main Street.

The stormwater replacement project is being undertaken in conjunction with the current development of the Pialba Youth Precinct at the eastern end of the Seafront Oval.
