Byron Bay Drainage Upgrade Project – Detailed Design Begins


The detailed design of the Byron Bay Drainage Upgrade Project has now begun, after Council adopted the concept design in February.

Byron Bay has a history of flooding during heavy rain, and this affects businesses and residents, this project aims to mitigate the flooding.

Chris Soulsby, Acting Manager Assets and Major Projects, said people may notice investigation work starting in Byron Bay, as part of the project.

“As part of formulating the detailed design, we will be drilling boreholes in late April/early May in the Byron Town Centre and Recreation Grounds areas. This process identifies soil types and ground conditions. Traffic management will be in place where required, while this work takes place,” Mr Soulsby said.
