Bass Coast Local News:
Drainage improvements for Goroke Street

Bass Coast Shire Council will soon begin construction on stormwater drainage works in Goroke Street in Inverloch.

By Portal Admin - 7th February 2017 - Back to News

The project is an important part of the Stormwater Drainage Renewal Program under the 2015 Drainage Asset Management Plan and will ensure delivery of the adopted Community Service levels.

The current drainage system for Goroke Street consists of an open channel, which requires constant maintenance due to overgrown vegetation and silting.

The open drain is also now within a residential area since the development of the Surf Beach Estate.

This stage will involve the installation of large concrete underground drainage pipes and back filling to the end of the caravan park, alleviating costly maintenance and removing any risk to the public.

Further works will be programmed as required downstream and as budgets allow.

Construction of drainage works will commence on this week and are expected to be completed in late March, weather permitting.

"Council will be working closely with the contractor to ensure a minimum amount of inconvenience and disruption to the public," Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield said.

"The community, local residents, businesses and other stakeholders will be kept up-to-date with the project through Councilís website updates and letter box drops or mail outs where appropriate."

This project will be carried out by Carriford Earthmoving and the project cost is $75,000.

For further information, please contact Council on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.
