Project overview

Council is planning to undertake survey and investigation works to inform future design options at seven different locations in Brisbane where retaining wall or embankment works are required to improve the asset life and ensure preventative safety improvements for the community.

These retaining wall and embankment rehabilitation projects are part of Council's commitment to protecting and improving the stability and safety of existing infrastructure around Brisbane.

These projects are funded by the Australian Government Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program. Subsequent rectification works are subject to future budget allocation.

Timing

The survey and investigation works are scheduled to commence between May and June 2021 and will occur intermittently over six weeks, weather and site conditions permitting. These works will generally be undertaken during the day, between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Some night works will be required at the Ann Street site in Fortitude Valley, to ensure the safety of road users and workers and to minimise traffic disruptions. Where works are required at night, they will be undertaken from Sunday to Thursday, between 7pm and 5am when traffic volumes are lowest.  

Impacts

Residents and businesses within the project areas may see surveyors, technical specialists, vehicles and machinery, such as elevated work platforms and vacuum excavation trucks, onsite and hear some noise from investigation activities.

Temporary lane and footpath closures may be required for some locations and activities, and traffic controllers will be onsite to assist motorists, pedestrians and cyclists around the work areas. Local access will not be affected by the works; however, short delays may be experienced.
