About the project

Brisbane City Council has identified two culvert crossings on Nudgee Road at Northgate (Cannery Creek and Pound Drain) that require rehabilitation to extend the lifespan of the asset, ensuring this busy road corridor can continue to cater for existing and future traffic demands.

The rehabilitation works to the  culverts will include concrete patching, grouting of joints, installation of a new liner and corrosion protection system to extend the life of the structures.

This project is fully funded by the Australian Government.


While the majority of the work is beneath the road surface and every effort is made to minimise impacts, drivers may experience a reduction of speed and some delays.

Residents and businesses may experience increased noise and dust during the works.

A number of mangroves and trees will need to be trimmed as part of the project. All work will be carried out in accordance with the relevant environmental guidelines and Council will make every effort to minimise environmental impacts during the works.

Council values your patience and cooperation while we undertake this work.


Due to impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic, site conditions and as a result of severe weather and flooding, construction for the Nudgee Road culverts rehabilitation project will continue until June 2022 – weather and site conditions permitting.

Works will generally be undertaken between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Some night works may be required between 8pm and 5am, Sunday to Thursday,

Council will provide advance notice to the community if any out-of-hours works are required, prior to works starting.
