17. Photo taken looking into the bottom of storm water drain in Mayfield Road where the BCC had removed the surface of the road in preparation of resurfacing the eastern end of Mayfield Road Moorooka and left this type of waste in both drains each side to the road at the intersection of Mayfield and Tarragindi Roads.

It's a shame that the BCC continues to allow this to continue happening.

These pictures are placed on the WEB in an attempt to SHAME the Brisbane City Council into remedial action.
