Sewer works in your area from November 2022

 

You might not notice a lot of the work we do because most of it is beneath your feet. Every day, we’re maintaining and upgrading the pipes and pumps that keep the sewage network flowing.

With some upcoming works in Titcher Road, Ebden Street, Oakwood Avenue, Corrigan Road, Kelvinside Road, Callander Road, Barnett Grove, Dunblane Road and Carpenter Street you might see us or our contractor ZJW (Zinfra, Jaydo, WSP, Joint Venture) around. Here’s what to expect while we get the job done.

What we're doing

The project will increase the capacity of the sewer network to cater for population growth in the area and future proof the sewerage system.

This project will be completed in stages, starting with the Ebden Street stage in Titcher Road, Ebden Street and Oakwood Avenue, Noble Park North. The Kelvinside Road and Callander Road stages will be completed in 2023. We'll keep you updated on our progress. See map below.

When it's happening

We’re planning to start works in mid November until August 2023. It should take around nine months to complete (depending on the weather).

Construction on the Ebden Street Upgrade is anticipated to be finished by late February 2023. Over the Christmas and New Year holidays we’ll pause works and make the area safe before returning in early January. 

You can expect us to work Monday to Friday between 7 am and 5 pm. On the odd occasion, we might need to work at other times for safety, technical or permit reasons.

What might impact you

We’ll do our best to keep impacts to a minimum, however these are the kinds of things you might notice while we work:

  • Change in normal traffic flow and lane and road closures on Titcher Road, Ebden Street and Oakwood Avenue, Noble Park North and Corrigan Road, Kelvinside Road, Callander Road, Barnett Grove, Dunblane Road and Carpenter Street, Noble Park (please refer to map below).
  • Driveway access will be impacted at some locations along the alignment. We’ll notify affected properties in advance.
  • Reduced speed limits will be in place.
  • More trucks on the streets around you.
