Callendar Park Drainage Works

Project Information

Cassowary Coast Regional Council is set to commence the critical Callendar Park drainage project on 24 June 2024.

Despite several weather delays, Council has awarded a successful tender to MGN Civil.

The major maintenance project estimated at $3.9 million will replace roughly 60 metres of ageing pipes. The installation of new pipes is projected to extend the area's service life while simultaneously reducing ongoing maintenance expenses.

Due to the project's location, a temporary road closure will be implemented from 24 June 2024 until late November 2024 along a section of Fitzgerald Esplanade, near the Graham Academy of Dance. Fear not, as alternative routes via Campbell Street or Emily Street will be clearly marked to guide road users and pedestrians. We kindly ask everyone to plan their journeys accordingly and to show due respect to the signage and barriers in place.

The full project works are expected to take about six months concluding in late November 2024, subject to weather and site conditions.

Minor impacts to existing services and increased truck and construction noises throughout the work site should be anticipated.

The project is fully funded by Cassowary Coast Regional Council.


Blackman Road, Warrami Floodway Remediation Works

Recent weather conditions have caused a change in our projected timeline for the Blackman Road Floodway Remediation Works. The revised completion date is now end of June 2024.

We will keep you updated on our progress and appreciate your understanding during the unforeseen weather-related delays.

What is happening?

The project will reinstate two floodways located along the road, to the west of Outstation Road, as well as sealing of approximately 1km section of Blackman Road. Once complete, the road will have improved flood immunity and reduced maintenance requirements.

During construction, the road will remain open under traffic control. Council appreciates the patience of residents and the travelling public while these important works are undertaken.

Funding Acknowledgement

This project is funded under the Australian Governments Roads to Recovery (RTR) program, supporting the construction and maintenance of local road infrastructure assets, facilitating greater accessibility and delivering better safety, economic and social outcomes. Total Cost of the project is $1.2M with the cost to RTR approximately $740,000.

Jubilee Road, Jubilee Heights Culvert and Causeway Upgrades

Council completed the upgrading of the aging culvert infrastructure at Jubilee Heights in February 2024. The road now has greater flood immunity due to the increased culvert size (on all three culvert renewal sections) and the raising of the causeway by 0.5 metres.

The causeway upgrading is located on Jubilee Road, at the intersection of Poly Creek Road and the two culvert renewal projects are between Polly Creek Road and Flying Fish Point Road.

The project was fully funded by Cassowary Coast Regional Council.
