Council is replacing a seriously deteriorating culvert on Brunswick Valley Way, just north of the North Byron Parklands site near Yelgun.

The $400,000 Council project is on track for completion by mid-November and will deliver a brand new culvert with larger and stronger pipes to handle increased volumes of flood water and reduce flooding on the road for the long-term.

The culvert works also include an additional guardrail and safety improvements.

“This $400,000 investment is part of Council’s $4.5 million causeway and major culvert renewal program targeting our highest risk structures,” Council’s Acting Director of Infrastructure Services, Cameron Clark said.

“To get this work done as quickly as possible, we need to reduce traffic at the site to a single lane for the duration of the works and we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

“We thank our local community for their patience as we get this important piece of infrastructure built and we look forward to the long-term benefits and peace of mind it will deliver when we are faced with flood events in the future,” Mr Clark said.
