Latest update Investigation work

About the project

Council is carrying out investigation and survey works on Wickham Street, Constance Street, Bridge Street, Ann Street, James Street and McLachlan Street from Monday 11 June 2018, as part of a broader program to improve drainage systems around the Fortitude Valley precinct.

Temporary lane and car park closures will be required during this time to help facilitate the work. Traffic controllers and signage will be in place to safely direct motorists and pedestrians around the site.

The investigation work will locate utilities beneath the roadway surface, such as electricity, gas and sewers. Throughout the works businesses and residents may experience noise disruption due to drilling, excavating, saw-cutting and jack-hammering of the roadway. Due to workplace health and safety requirements, reversing beepers cannot be switched off.

Timing

These works will take place from 11 June, Monday to Thursday between 7pm and 5am for approximately four weeks, weather and construction conditions permitting.

During this time work will be carried out intermittently as the work crew progressively move from Wickham Street to McLachlan Street.

Works will be undertaken at night when traffic volumes are lowest to ensure the safety of road users and workers and to minimise traffic disruptions.
