Red Hill is an inner suburb of Brisbane, Queensland. It lies 3 kilometers north-west of the Brisbane CBD. It is one of Brisbane’s energetic and active inner-city suburbs with the population consisting of 48.6% females and 51.40% males. From 1887, it was part of Shire of Ithaca, which subsequently became the Town of Ithaca in 1903. The Ithaca Town Council was absorbed into the Brisbane City Council in 1925. The council chambers of the former Town Council were located in Enoggera Terrace and after unification were used by the Brisbane City Council as a public library. The establishment eventually closed in 1998. A significant landmark in the suburb is St Bridget’s Church, an old Roman Catholic Church, which was built in 1914. Its hilltop position and enormous structure make sure that it is noticeable from all directions.
The suburb is very hilly and mostly occupied by residential structures, with some strip shops and small businesses located on Musgrave and Waterworks Roads. With the massive demand for housing and real estates coupled with the area’s land structure, the drainage system here is quite problematic with many broken pipes due to poor installation, age and tree roots. Water doesn’t flow uphill and drainage is all about gravity, so in hilly areas like this more complex pipework is often necessary which inevitably required more extensive cleaning of blocked drains. To add to the problem, old, corroded pipe installations and tree roots cause the build-up of particles and debris that eventually result in blocked drains.
