Recognized by many as “The Valley”, this suburb is located immediately northeast of the central business district of Brisbane (1km away), and is widely popular among locals and tourists because of its vibrant cityscape at night – with an array of clubs, bars and establishments that cater to adult entertainment.
Aside from the lively night scene, Fortitude Valley also maintains a reputation as a premier retail destination for many, having strategically located shopping areas with easy access to various forms of transportation. The Chinatown Mall and the Brunswick Street Malls are both popular areas for visitors to Brisbane and contain a large number of shops and eateries. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the area from both residents and non-residents alike, over 50,000 people visit the area’s clubs, pubs and restaurants every Friday and Saturday night.
With the diverse selection of commercial establishments in the region, Fortitude Valley’s drainage system has been greatly affected causing grease to build up in the drains, leaving only a small space for waste water to pass through. This is the most common cause of drainage issues in the area although collapsed pipes and the occasional tree root also cause problems there. Additionally, because of ongoing construction in the area, old pipes are often damaged and need replacing.
If you live or work in Fortitude Valley and have an issue with a drain blocking up, please call Drain Cleaning Brisbane on 0408 738 868 immediately.
