Durrant Street upgrade

We are undertaking essential drainage improvement works on Durrant Street, from Marion Street to Hampton Street, Brighton. Construction is programmed to start in late March 2017, with an approximate duration of 10 weeks.

Residents and user of the street will notice very little change in the way you use the street amenities. Driveways will be extended in most locations, on-street parking will change in a few places, and new bike lanes will be included.

About the project

The objectives of this project are to reduce localised flooding, provide conditions for healthier street trees, and improve traffic flow and safety of residents and other road users.

The existing street trees close to the drainage channel have adversely affected the surrounding road and drainage infrastructure. The tree roots have lifted the road pavement, kerbs and channels, which in turn has resulted in localised water ponding and in some locations, flooding of properties.

The proposal involves re-positioning drainage channels so that they are not affected by tree roots, and forming tree pits to permit healthy development of existing trees. Some street trees, which are in poor health, will be removed and replaced with suitable new trees.

The works will also enable the buses to fully pull up to the kerb, improving traffic movement through the street.

Project site plan

The project is split into 8 key sections. These are:

Properties 2 to 15 and 14 to 20
Properties 15 to 23 and 22 to 36
Properties 29 to 39 and 40 to 48
Properties 41 to 45
Properties 47 to 55 and 58 to 66
Properties 55A to 61 and 68 to 80
Properties 63 to 69 and 82 to 94
Properties 71 to 79 and 109 and 111

What will it look like?
