What we are doing

  • Downer, as part of SCIRT, is repairing the earthquake damaged wastewater system in Sydenham.
  • Starting Thursday 19 January 2017, we will be repairing a wastewater lateral outside 31 Dundas Street.
  • This work will take two days to complete, subject to favourable on-site and weather conditions.
  • A lateral is the pipe that connects a property to the mainline in the street. We will need to dig a small trench near the middle of the road to access and repair the damaged pipe. See Map 1 for location of works.
  • Once the connection is repaired we will backfill the access point. The trench will then be sealed by a separate roading crew.

Traffic impacts

  • Two-way traffic will be maintained on Dundas Street using a stop-go system.
  • To create a safe work area for the crew and to maintain two-way traffic there will be a reduction in available car parks.
  • Please use alternative parking during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience.
  • Our standard hours of work are 7:00am–6:00pm.
  • We appreciate your cooperation and patience while we complete these essential repairs.
  • There may be an increased level of noise, dust and vibration levels associated with this work. We will do our best to keep disruption to a minimum.
  • We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we complete these essential repairs.
