What works are coming up?
Piling works are required for the construction of the new overpass as part of the Moggil Road Corridor Upgrade Project.
Piles are columns of steel or concrete that is drilled into the ground to provide support for a structure such as a bridge or retaining wall.
Piling involves excavating a deep shaft and lowering a reinforced steel cage into the hole. The hole is then filled with concrete, which sets around the steel cage.

What does this mean for me?
- Noise, dust and vibration: these works will generate noise and vibrations that some residents may experience. The works will need to be carried out under night works lane closures due to the close proximity to Moggill Road and overhead high voltage powerlines.
- Temporary lighting: lighting towers are required to be used to light work areas at night to ensure worker safety.
- Traffic control : One lane will be closed on Moggill Road inbound and delays can be expected.
What does this work include?
The following works will be undertaken:
- drilling to create the shaft
- removal of excess material
- lowering of steel reinforcement
- concrete placement
- traffic management.
Additional concrete pours are required during night works on the roundabout site.
To keep the concrete temperature down and allow it to cure correctly, these pours will be done on night shift, however may extend into day shift between 5.30am and 7am.
Residents may hear the concrete pumps on site during these works.
