The Roads and Maritime Service will be undertaking work on several Goulburn streets next week.
An RMS spokesman said the digging and drilling on Sloane, Grafton, Reynolds and Goldsmith Streets was designed to “better understand the existing road surface and to help plan for possible future work.”
It’s believed to be related to negotiations with the council to swap ownership of Sloane and Auburn Streets. The RMS previously declined to take on Sloane Street, saying it didn’t have the funds for its maintenance. However, talks are back on track following an angry reaction from the council. It wants greater control over its main street.
Changed traffic conditions will be apply during the work, which will take place between 7am and 6pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 16 and 17 October. Temporary lane closures, traffic control and a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place.
Meantime, the council’s contractor Interflow will be conducting maintenance and repairs to Goulburn sewer mains.
The work in the CBD is designed to improve the sewer system. It involves closed circuit television (CCTV), inspection and cleaning of the main sewer pipes.
