A storm water pipe that has been diverted from discharging into Malabar Bay.

The success of the Malabar Beach storm water diversion project (see Southern Courier) was based on some hard headed negotiations in 2010 between former Greens Mayor Murray Matson and Maroubra MP Michael Daley to secure a fair funding deal for Randwick City Council ratepayers.
