Shakespeare Street water main renewal works

Published: 01 Apr 2022

A new water main will be installed along Shakespeare Street between Rae and Hoey streets.

Work is expected to start on the project next week (from April 6) for approximately eight weeks, weather permitting.

The new water main will be installed along the northern side of Shakespeare Street and will reduce the risk of failure while increasing the water supply and reliability of the local network.

Water interruptions will occur during the project, however advanced notice will be given to directly affected residents prior to any interruptions occurring.

The works will be completed under traffic control, with the work zone area reduced to a single lane when crews are on site. The area will reopen as two lanes at the end of each day.

Motorists and pedestrians are asked to please follow all signage and instructions in the area while works are completed.
