About the project

The works involved:
  • setting up a site and laydown area on Harcourt Street
  • geo-technical investigation to locate the services on Commercial Road, Harcourt Street and unnamed lane
  • excavating one lane of Commercial Road near the intersection of Harcourt Street, to install drainage infrastructure
  • excavating from one side of Harcourt Street to the other, along Harcourt Street for approximately 45 metres towards unnamed lane, for installation of drainage pipes and manhole upgrades
  • excavating and installing drainage on unnamed lane.

While these works are complete, the project still requires service lines to be relocated. This work is estimated to be completed in late August 2021.

Service relocation works will involve relocating the water and sewer mains, and the Energex service line, on the corner of Commercial Road and Harcourt Street from 2 August until the end of August, weather permitting.

Council apologises for any inconvenience these additional works may cause, and thanks the community for their patience and understanding

The completed works will provide local residents and businesses in this area with improved flood immunity.
