Work is underway in Lowood to upgrade the local sewer network.
A new 2.4km sewer rising main has now been installed along Prospect Street and Glamorganvale Road, between Park Street and Forest Hill-Fernvale Road, and the work crew will commence the next stage of the works - upgrading the sewer main along Railway Street and Forest Hill Fernvale Road.
Work started in September 2016 and is expected to be finished in February 2017.
The crew have now completed the tunnel boring under the street, and will continue to trench along Railway Street and Forest Hill Fernvale Road, upgrading the existing sewer main by replacing the pipe with a new, higher capacity pipe.
Working hours will be Monday to Friday, between 7am and 5pm. Some additional out of hours work may be required from time to time. Residents will be notified in advance of any night or weekend work.
Construction noise from excavation, including vehicle and machinery movements, reversing safety beepers and generators.
- Dust impacts associated with excavation during construction will be managed at the source using water suppression, as required.
- Changed traffic conditions, including an increase in truck movements and reduced speeds. Traffic control will be onsite during working hours.
- Bypass hoses will be installed along Forest Hill Fernvale Road in mid to late October 2016. Residents and stakeholders will be notified in advance of hoses being installed.
Thank you for your patience as these important works are underway.
