We recently conducted a maintenance inspection of local sewerage infrastructure at Sandford Street, St Lucia. The inspection identified a severely damaged maintenance hole and a compromised section of sewer pipe.
An engineering solution has been developed to replace the damaged infrastructure and ensure operational sustainability for more than 50 years.
From Monday 30 November 2015, work will start outside 26-32 Sandford Street, St Lucia, to construct a new maintenance hole, replace the damaged sewer pipe and install new property connections.
The work will be completed in about two weeks, weather and ground conditions permitting.
Project work hours will be 7am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday, with some night works required to do the ‘tie-in’ to the new property connections during low flows in the sewer. Residents will be notified about night works 48 hours in advance.
Construction may impact nearby residents by:
- altered traffic conditions under an approved traffic management scheme
- using jackhammers to break up bitumen and rock
- construction vehicle movements on local roads
- reversing beepers on construction vehicles and machinery
- dust generating activities, including the removal and replacement of excavated soil
- water pressure cleaning powered by a compressor
- asphalting to restore the road surface.
- Property access will be maintained at all times.
- Pedestrian and cyclist access will also be maintained, with traffic control in place to assist.
- Residents are asked to travel through the area with care and observe all signposting, speed limits and any directions given by traffic controllers.
