Roe Street Schedule Oct 2018

As of 3 August 2018: Our investigation work found some unexpected services located in the proposed location of the new water main, meaning the pipe is unable to be installed where previously planned.

Our project team is now reassessing alternative design options for the project, which includes completing additional service location investigations on the southern side of Roe Street.

We hope to start construction of the new water main in mid October 2018.

As of 11 July 2018: Construction work will be starting end of July 2018 and will be completed end of October 2018.
