Mullaway Drainage Works

Coffs Harbour City Council plans to upgrade drainage to improve flows through sections of Orchid Road and The Boulevarde.

Coffs Harbour City Council plans to upgrade drainage to improve flows through sections of Orchid Road, The Boulevarde and a small section of Sun Street.

There is a ponding issue either side of Sun Street. Residents have expressed concerns to Council that this location experiences periods of water and algae being held in the table drain.

Council has allocated funding for the design and construction of swale drainage along a section of Orchid Road and The Boulevarde, to intercept and redirect drainage flows. Works are scheduled to be completed this financial year.

Detailed design of the proposed drainage works is nearing completion and Council seeks to inform residents of the proposed drainage design and invites comments. Comments are invited until September 4, to inform detailed designs.

Works will extend from numbers 3 and 6 Orchid Road to number 69 The Boulevarde, and a small section of Sun Street.

Current budget allocations do not enable road upgrade, kerb and gutter or footpaths to be included within this works program.

Council seeks comments to identify any issues residents have identified that will need to be addressed in the final design.

It is important residents are aware that the swale drainage design will require the reconstruction of driveway entrances from the road to the property boundary line.

Existing formal driveway entrances will be replaced at cost to Council, however construction to replace unformed driveway entrances will require a cost contribution from property owners - cost estimates will be provided after designs are finalised.

Further information, contact Council’s Project Liaison Officers: Damon Leach (phone 66484406) or Andrew Smith (ph 66484671).
