What’s Going On in Flaxton Road?

There’s a lot of earth being moved around at the corner of Flaxton and Fernside Roads, Southbrook.  What’s it all about?

Two things are happening. 

A stormwater retention system is being built to take stormwater from the recently-zoned business area bounded by Flaxton, Fernside and Todds Roads.  An increase in the coverage of hard flat surfaces – mainly roofs and concrete – will mean that will be much more run-off.  The Faxton Road Drain will not be able to handle all that water, so it will have to be held back and released slowly.

The second thing that is happening is that the Fernside Road intersection is being made safer. That horrible little bridge by the car-wash ford will go, and Fernside Road will meet Flaxton Road at a right-angle with much better visibilty.
