Greenslopes Stormwater Drainage Undergoes Upgrade

Greenslopes Stormwater Drainage Undergoes Upgrade

The Greenslopes stormwater drainage system is set to get an upgrade. The project encompasses streets around the Greenslopes Private Hospital including Denman Street, Hunter Street and Newdegate Street.



Council is undertaking an upgrade of the Greenslopes stormwater drainage which will involve replacing the existing stormwater pipes that run along the centre of Denman, Hunter and Newdegate Streets. The project will also see the upgrading of the gully that connects the stormwater in Hunter Street as well as providing connections to the existing stormwater pipes and drainage.

Sections of the road will be closed to traffic to make way for the construction which is expected to be completed by mid-April 2023.
