Logan City Council’s new water reservoir being built at Logan Village to cater for the area’s fast-growing population is one step closer to completion.

A massive 245 cubic metre concrete slab was poured early last month for the second Travis Rd reservoir. The marathon job took 24 workers five hours to pour and another three hours to finish off.
Logan City Council City Roads and Water Committee Chairman, Councillor Phil Pidgeon, said it was a mammoth task for the Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance (LoganWIA).

“We’re future-proofing water supplies for the Logan Village and Yarrabilba communities by not only building this new reservoir, but also by doing earthworks for a third reservoir that is planned for construction by 2031.

“The first reservoir at the site holds three megalitres, and this new one will hold six megalitres, so we’ll be storing the equivalent of almost four Olympic swimming pools at the site very soon.”
The new reservoir will be completed later this year.
