About the project

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

Initial investigations were undertaken in May and August 2019 and, to further inform the design of the rehabilitation works, additional investigations are new required.

This project is fully funded by the Australian Government.

Investigation works

The works will involve surveying, geotechnical testing and vacuum excavation investigations (potholing) near both culverts. 

Works will commence from mid-February 2021 and take approximately six weeks to complete, weather permitting. Due to the busy nature of Nudgee Road these investigation works will be undertaken at night, from 7pm to 5am Thursday to Sunday. 

Impacts during investigation works

Nudgee Road will remain open while the investigations are undertaken, however some minor delays may be experienced with the speed limit reduced to 40km/h through investigation areas. Signage and traffic control will be in place to guide road users, pedestrians and cyclists through the area.

Residents and businesses near the Cannery Creek and Pound Drain culvert crossings on Nudgee Road may experience some impacts associated with these works, including some increased noise at night, dust, vibrations and odour. Due to workplace health and safety requirements reversing beepers cannot be switched off.
