* For efficiency we are working on a number of sites concurrently and if held up on a previous site we may be delayed starting the investigation at this location. Thank you for your patience.

  • We are planning to undertake the investigations between Thursday 19 April and Friday 27 April 2012. We will be working Monday to Friday between the hours of 7.00am to 5.00pm. On rare occasions we may have to work weekends to complete essential work.
  • The work will involve a truck with specialized drilling and ground testing equipment. The purpose of the investigation is to identify the best way to repair the road.
  • The construction of the road is likely to be a number of months away at this stage as there is a lot of design detail that needs to be completed before actual construction work can commence.
  • We expect the work to take about four days to complete, subject to favourable weather and on-site conditions.
  • The work has no impact on current water, power and sewer services.
  • The work will impact on traffic movements and traffic management will be in place.
  • Be on the lookout for changed traffic conditions and drive to the conditions.
  • The work may result in increased dust, noise and vibration.
  • Safety is our number one priority. Safety is your responsibility too.
  • Stay clear and stay alert – keep children and pets at a safe distance.
  • We will endeavour to keep any disruption to a minimum. We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we do this work.
  • For information about the work in this notice, phone Downer on 0800 400 310 (7.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday).
