Water main replacement in the City Centre

Published: 31 Jan 2022

Council is installing a new water main along the eastern side of Brisbane Street, between Victoria and Gordon streets.

Construction will start this week, and will take approximately seven weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Works will start at the Victoria Street end of Brisbane Street and will progress towards Gordon Street. Once complete, the work will improve the reliability of the local water network.

The work will be undertaken Monday to Friday from 6am to 4pm and on weekends when required.

A partial road closure of the southbound lane will be required to allow machinery to maneuverer safely. However, the road will reopen to normal traffic flow each afternoon at 4pm.

Pedestrian access will be available during the works and motorists and pedestrians are asked to follow all signage on display at the site.

Council apologises for any inconvenience caused and thanks residents for their patience.
