Gheringhap Street stormwater drain upgrade project - Open House

This engagement is complete

Date: Thursday, 19 July 2018 to Monday, 23 July 2018


The City of Greater Geelong and the Victorian Government are working together as the Revitalising Central Geelong Partnership to plan and deliver the Gheringhap Street stormwater drain upgrade. The project supports the revitalisation of central Geelong to turn the CBD into a magnet for new jobs and growth.

As central Geelong continues to attract more people and business, the Partnership are investing in new infrastructure that supports sustainable development. Flooding has been a persistent problem for the area, with at least four severe rainfall events over the past 17 years causing flash flooding as the existing drainage networks failed to cope. 

The most effective solution to minimise future flooding is the installation of an additional stormwater drain along Gheringhap Street from below Johnstone Park to Corio Bay.

You are invited to attend an open house on the project to see the design plans for the underground drain pipe, hear about the construction process and assist in identifying the building access and people movement considerations for the traffic management planning.
