$337K FOR BIBIMULYA STREET DRAIN RECONSTRUCTION

Moreton Bay Regional Council has awarded a $337,000 tender for the final stage of the Bibimulya Street drain reconstruction project at Bellara. Division 1 Councillor Brooke Savige made the announcement at council’s coordination committee meeting on Tuesday, June 26. “I’m pleased to say the council is getting straight into its newly budgeted works and marking off the first of a number of vital stormwater and coastal waterway projects to be delivered in 2018/19,” Cr Savige said.

The project includes the reconstruction of the drainage system’s side walls, lining and connecting slabs to replace the ageing concrete and follows on from the reconstruction of another part of the Bibimulya Street system. “This is a more durable structure than the existing drain. “It is the final piece in the puzzle, which will help continue to protect what we love about Bellara and the island.” Cr Savige said works are expected to begin next month and take approximately 10 weeks to complete, weather permitting.
