Our contractor, Diona, will be working in the following locations over the coming weeks:
- Edward Street, between Ann and Adelaide Streets from Tuesday 7 January for about two weeks (7pm-5am Sun-Thu)
- Albert Street, intersection of Margaret/Albert Street from Sunday 12 January for about two weeks (7pm-5am Sun-Thu)
- Albert Street, between Mary and Alice Streets from Tuesday 28 January for about four weeks (6am-6pm Mon-Fri)
- Roma Street, between Ann and Turbot Streets from Wednesday 15 January for about four weeks (7pm-5am Sun-Thu)
The majority of the work will be done at night between 7pm and 5am, Sunday to Thursday.
Please note: Most of this work will be scheduled after-hours to comply with approved traffic permits and minimise the impacts of planned water outages for the community. Crews will endeavour to complete high noise excavations as early as possible each night, followed by pipe laying and back filling activities (subject to site conditions).
Construction in each street is expected to take up to four weeks to complete, with work progressing along the alignment to install the new water main/s (subject to weather and ground conditions). Following construction, crews will return for up to two weeks to complete final restoration of affected areas.
Changed traffic conditions
In order to install the new water mains, there will be lane closures and detours around work sites at different times. Pedestrian and local access will be maintained under the direction of traffic controllers.
Please take care and observe all signposting, speed limits and any directions given by traffic controllers.
Important information for Building Managers
Fire alarms, sprinkler systems, domestic water pumps, tanks and cooling towers might be affected by water interruptions. We recommend Building Managers contact the relevant fire and equipment service provider for advice about preparing your building systems before an interruption.
