Category: Stormwater drainage network
Marian Road between Glynburn Road and Hampden Street was identified as a high priority area in the Council’s City-wide Floodplain Mapping and Long Term Drainage Program.
As a result, a detailed design was commissioned for the reconstruction of the roundabout and drainage network.
To resolve the excessive surface runoff and flooding issues, the works involve the reconstruction and re-alignment of the Marian Road Roundabout, incorporating a new drainage network and water sensitive urban design.
MLEI Design Consultants were engaged by Council to undertake a detailed design for the project.
The design incorporates water sensitive urban design to capture and re-distribute surface runoff directly into localised rain gardens and treenet inlets.
Works for this project included:
- reconstruction of Marian Road/Hampden Street roundabout
- pavement reconstruction
- installation of new drainage network
- construction of raingardens and landscaping works
- upgrades to existing Marian Road/Avenue Road roundabout.
The project commenced in June 2021 and was completed in September 2021.
