About the project

Our delivery partner, Downer WSP, and their contractors are commencing works to upgrade the existing pump station at the end of Elliot Road, near intersection of East Street, Boonah.

The upgrade will improve overall network reliability and ensure long-term service delivery to the local community.

 

Project delivery

Construction will commence late-March and is expected to take up to 3 months to complete, weather and site conditions permitting. Works will take place at the Elliot Road Pump Station, located at the end of Elliot Road near the intersection of East Street, Boonah.  Crews, trucks and equipment will be in the area during the works.

What to expect

During construction, nearby residents and businesses may experience some noise and dust from heavy machinery, increased vehicle movements and minor vibrations.

Changed traffic conditions may be in place around work areas along Elliot Road, Boonah. Traffic management will be in place to look after the safety of pedestrians and road users and maintain local access. There will also be temporary restrictions to on street parking during construction.

Some intermittent odour may occur when maintenance hole lids are removed or during ventilation. This activity is required to ensure the safety of crews working in confined spaces.

Please take care and observe all signposting, speed limits and any directions given by traffic controllers. Barriers and signage will be installed around work areas to keep everyone safe.

 

Work hours

Works will be carried out during the day between 6:30am and 6:30pm, Monday to Friday, with occasional Saturday works. In some situations, we may need to carry out works at night, between 7pm-5am.  Residents will be notified before any works take place.

 

Sewerage Services

There will be no interruption to individual property sewerage services during these works. Downer WSP will temporarily redirect and remove the flow of sewage by tankering from one location to another.

 

Work location

These upgrade works will take place at the Elliot Road Pump Station, located at the end of Elliot Road near the intersection of East Street, Boonah.

  • Holding area will be located near the Elliot
  • Road Pump Station within the road verge.

 

Tree and vegetation removal

We understand local parks and resident fauna and flora are highly valued by the community.

To allow for these essential works, there may be tree and vegetation removal within private property near the pump station.

We have gone through an extensive process of design and approvals to ensure every effort has been made to minimise tree removal where possible. Trees marked for removal in the construction access area will be removed in accordance with Ipswich City Council and State Government requirements. These activities will be monitored and approved by a qualified Arborist and a Fauna Spotter.

 

Restoration activities

Post construction, we will restore all work areas as close to original condition as possible and will undertake landscaping to ensure the area blend with the existing environment as much as possible.

 

How will impacts be managed?

  • Downer WSP and their contractors will minimise the construction impacts to the extent possible, including managing noise and dust at the source, utilising traffic control and reviewing work methods as required.
  • Changed traffic conditions will be in place around work areas with the use of traffic control to manage the flow of traffic, ensure pedestrian safety and maintain local access.
  • Please take care and observe all signposting, speed limits and any directions given by traffic controllers. Barriers and signage will be installed around work areas to keep everyone safe.
  • Post construction, we’ll restore work areas as close to the original condition as possible and landscaping will ensure the above ground components blend with the surrounding environment as much as possible.

 

Our commitment

There will be no interruption to your sewerage services during these works. We’ll minimise construction impacts to the extent possible, including managing noise and dust at the source, utilising traffic control and reviewing work methods as required.

We’ll keep the community and directly impacted residents informed as works progress.
