Frankton Stormwater Upgrade

We will be upgrading the Frankton Stormwater system later this year, providing for current and future stormwater capacity as growth in the area continues.

About the project

This project will include:

  • Upgrading approximately 600m of stormwater pipe along Lucas Place, between the roundabouts at Sir Henry Wigley Drive and Hawthorne Drive

  • Upgrading the downstream pipework, through an easement and down Douglas Street and turning into Roberston Street

  • Upgrades on Lucas Place with a full road rehabilitation and approximately 250m of Hawthorne Drive intersected by the roundabout with Lucas Place and the entrance to the Remarkables Park shopping complex

Frequently asked questions

  • The project is a key part of Council’s plan to accommodate growth and provide more resilience across the district’s stormwater network.

    The opportunity has also been taken to combine the stormwater upgrades on Lucas Place with a full road rehabilitation.

    The current road quality is poor, with a number of potholes on Lucas Place and Hawthorne Drive. The road quality will be significantly improved after the rehabilitation works have been completed.
