Project Description

The existing culvert structure is in poor condition due to age and needs to be replaced. This road section has a low flood immunity (Q2)and is frequently inaccessible during significant rainfall events. Temporary treatments applied in the past are not providing a long term solution, causing strain on asset maintenance resources. Redbank Plains Road is a major cross city route linking principal activity centres and high growth residential suburbs. It is also a heavy vehicle access route.

Upgrade the structure over Six Mile Creek to improve road safety and increase flood immunity to Q20. The existing culvert structure will be replaced with a 2 span concrete bridge approximately 50m long and 13m wide. Works will include associated approach road works.

Total cost of proposed project is $5,203,459
