St George Kerb and Channel Works - Murchison Street
Council: Balonne Shire Council
Fund: Remote and Indigenous Communities Fund
Category: Flood Mitigation Infrastructure
Improvements to St George stormwater drainage infrastructure will make the drainage system more efficient and better protect the town from flooding.
The project will install:
kerb and channelling along 400m of Murchison Street (between St George's Terrace and Victoria Street)
a stormwater drainage pipe
a headwall and rock protection at the discharge site at the Balonne River
sediment control devices and flood gates in Murchison Street.
Being a stormwater channel point for a number of nearby streets, improvements to drainage infrastructure in Murchison Street will improve the stormwater drainage efficiency of a large sector of St George.
