When is it happening?

Work is now complete and we are finalising a few outstanding reinstatements with individual properties. 

How will this impact the community?

Noise
Construction work can, unfortunately, be noisy and dusty at times. Construction of the pipeline will involve road cutting, excavating and compacting. These activities are most noticeable at the start and end of our work when we cut the road and excavate, and then when we backfill and compact to reinstate the road. We may also need to use generators for some sections of work. Rest assured, all open trenched areas are always safely fenced and signed.

Traffic management
The work will be carried out in stages, and as the pipeline is a large 1 m diameter pipe, one lane of traffic will be affected during the work. In certain sections, full road closures may be required for short periods of time. The pipeline will be installed using trenchless techniques (tunnelling) in Lancaster and Bombardier Roads to minimise disruption to the community.
