Scenic Rim Regional Council's commitment to maintaining and improving the region's stormwater infrastructure is underpinned by a $1.08 million Budget allocation for drainage improvements in 2019-20.
Mayor Greg Christensen said two major projects totalling $530,000 had been identified for delivery at Tamborine Mountain and Beaudesert, in line with Council's commitment to the shared Community Plan vision for an accessible and serviced region.
"We will be rolling out improvements in Beaudesert at the Kerry Hills Estate at a cost of $225,000," he said.
"Our program to improve the drainage network and improve stormwater drainage on Tamborine Mountain is continuing, with $150,000 allocated for works at Paradise Drive to Elbert Street."
In addition, $155,000 has been allocated for other minor drainage works across the Scenic Rim in Council's 2019-20 Budget.
As part of its Vibrant and Active Towns and Villages program, Council has allocated an additional $550,000 for drainage improvements to the Beaudesert Town Centre.
