The road works area received 41mm of rainfall overnight on the 21/22 March. Over a 24 hour period on the 22nd they received 286mm, including 150mm between 3:30pm-6:30pm!
The Caloundra Rd intersection performed well with no contamination to runoff leaving the site. There was a small amount of turbid water crossing Bellvista Blvd south of the Bellcarra roundabout due to stabilised areas being recently disturbed by electrical contractors. As soon as this run-off was identified, these areas were covered in geofabric which improved the water quality significantly.
Stockland’s electrical contractors (Coastal Energy) are conducting works at both intersections on Bellvista Blvd today (Friday). They have advised they will have traffic control starting from 11am. Stockland has reiterated to them the direction that no works under traffic control are to be conducted during school pickup periods.
