Main Street and Wakefield St (roadworks and water and wastewater mains renewal work)

Footpath, kerb, channels, and road surface upgrade in conjunction with Main St, Wakefield St, Logan St water and wastewater mains renewal work

 Click here for a map showing the location.

To minimise cost and avoid multiple disruptions, Council is taking the opportunity to upgrade sections of Main and Wakefield streets at the same time as water and wastewater mains renewal work is being carried out. The footpath, curb, gutter, and road surface will be upgraded as the pipe renewal work is completed. Please note that the roading improvements will extend the hours of work into the night and weekends and will continue past the pipe renewal completion of 30 September. More information on the water and wastewater mains renewal is provided below.
