Motorists are expected to experience minor disruption over the next month as the council undertakes water mains replacement in the CBD.
Contractor Killard Excavation has been engaged to do the work on Verner Street, between Bourke Street and Auburn Street.
It includes service investigation, design, pipe laying, and under boring. The project, aimed at improving water quality, started on Thursday, February 1 and was expected to take four weeks.
Traffic control measures will be in place. However if people require assistance to access their home, they can speak to site traffic control officer Lauren Kelly on 0474 864 900 or the site supervisor, Brian Traynor on 0439 354 437.
Normal working hours (7am to 5pm) should apply on this project. There may also be interruptions to water supply, but a council spokesman says inconvenience will be kept to a minimum.
For further information, contact Mathew Jones on 4823 4537.
Meantime, construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Bourke Street and Verner Street is due to begin on February 13.
The $360,000 project is funded through the Federal Government’s Roads to Recovery Program ($116,00) and $244,000 from the council.
