Work has commenced.

For updates, please see the News Feed below.

We are planning the construction of a new drainage pipeline along How Road and Lacey Drive, Aldinga Beach.

The work is necessary to support the state school on Quinliven Road. on Quinliven Road. The project has multiple stakeholders and funding sources, including the Department for Education and Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT). DIT are funding necessary road network upgrades and stormwater drainage works required to accommodate the new school.

The new drainage pipeline will allow stormwater runoff upstream to be diverted away from How Road and into the existing wetland at Pridham Boulevard. The outflow to the Hart Road wetland is then utilised to top up groundwater. The works will also intercept high flows from How Road, with normal flows continuing down the grassed channel. Drainage from Lacey Drive will remain in a separate pipeline.

View the Drainage upgrade design.

The drainage upgrade is expected to be undertaken in the 2020-21 financial year once construction funding has been approved and will be completed by December 2021 in time for the opening of the new school in early 2022.

The drainage upgrade will consist of:

  • installation of a new drainage pipe connection in How Road to the school development
  • work at the How Road/Lacey Drive intersection to divert high flows to the Lacey Drive pipeline
  • installation of a new drainage pipe along Lacey Drive to the existing wetland and detention basin adjacent to Pridham Boulevard.

Work will be done in two stages:

Stage 1 is extending the already existing stormwater system to accommodate the new school stormwater outlet.

This work will occur on the eastern verge of How Road with work also commencing within the Renewal SA land. This allows us to keep both lanes running each way on How Road, although it will be at a reduced speed of 25km/h..

Stage 2 will be work further down How Road. There is a 100m long swale we will be constructing approaching Lacey Drive, this will then run into a new stormwater system which will cross How Road then head west down Lacey in the centre of the road where it will continue to the stormwater catchment ponds along Aldinga Beach Road. This pipe run is approx. 600m and there will be traffic restrictions in place.

Once design is complete for Stage 2, the work will be tendered out. Construction for Stage 2 is anticipated for later this year.

The project is scheduled to commence in 2021 and will be completed by December 2021.

    Stage 1 works from Dolphin Boulevard to the southern boundary of Galilee College are now complete.

    Stage 2 works with swale improvements along How Road opposite Lacey Drive and extending our stormwater network down Lacey Drive will recommence in early July.

    There will be some activity and traffic restrictions in the coming months from service authorities as Telstra, SAPN & Sa Water relocate existing services to accommodate Stage 2 drainage extension, these closures will be communicated by the relevant service authorities once they have been scheduled.
