  • Location: Sobraon Street
    Project:

    Following the intense rainfall event over the weekend of 26-27 February, damage to the constructed stormwater outfall protection occurred. This has impacted a small section of the sandy slope near the Sobraon and Vernon Street, Sunrise Beach intersection.

    Temporary protection work will involve the blocking of three upstream stormwater inlets and the installation of a surface protection to the outfall to manage damaging stormwater flow. As a result, road users may experience additional flow along the roadway of Sobraon Street during periods of heavy rainfall.
